We studied the risk of a large group of jaundiced neonates for bilirubin encephalopathy by serial assessment of their reserve serum albumin binding capacity as measured by the saturation index test. In 1271 infants with serum bilirubin concentration greater than 10 mg/dl, 12% had a saturation index (SI) of 7% or greater and therefore were clinically at or(More)

Pericentric inversions occur at a frequency of 0.12-0.7% in humans. However, pericentric inversions of chromosome 22 appear to be common, especially in patients originating from the Guadalajara region of Mexico. Here, we report a seventh case of a pericentric inversion of chromosome 22, the resulting recombinant chromosome, and describe the phenotypic(More)
