Published reports show that male carriers of an X-autosome translocation, which is either inherited from their mother or is de novo, are generally sterile, regardless of the position of the breakpoint in the X chromosome. We report a three-generation propagation of such a translocation in a family with a case of male factor infertility. Due to the condition(More)
Mutations in SCO2, a metallochaperone involved in mitochondrial copper delivery, are associated with early onset, fatal hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. All reported patients carry at least one copy of the common 1541G>A (E140K) mutation. Whereas patients with one copy of the E140K allele, in combination with a more deleterious mutation, follow a severe(More)
Long-term follow-up of three individuals with Kabuki syndrome indicates their phenotype becomes less striking as adults. It is characterized by short stature, obesity, and relatively large head. Long palpebral fissures persist, as does mild to moderate mental retardation. Independent daily living skills are achieved but a sheltered living environment is(More)
We describe a family with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). Three of five members with FAP showed flat, well-demarcated, round to oval pigmented patches of congenital hypertrophy of the RPE. We stress the importance of congenital hypertrophy of the RPE as a clinical marker in identifying(More)
