Hydrops fetalis (HF) is characterized by an accumulation of fluid in the extracellular compartments and in body cavities. Non-immune HF (NIHF) is caused by a wide variety of disorders and overall, 20-25% of NIHF remain unexplained. Inborn errors of metabolism, mostly lysosomal storage diseases have been estimated to account for 1-2% of cases, leading to HF(More)

Complex cortical malformations associated with mutations in tubulin genes are commonly referred to as "Tubulinopathies". To further characterize the mutation frequency and phenotypes associated with tubulin mutations, we studied a cohort of 60 foetal cases. Twenty-six tubulin mutations were identified, of which TUBA1A mutations were the most prevalent (19(More)
BACKGROUND CHARGE syndrome is a rare, usually sporadic disorder of multiple congenital anomalies ascribed to a CHD7 gene mutation in 60% of cases. Although the syndrome is well characterised in children, only one series of 10 fetuses with CHARGE syndrome has been reported to date. Therefore, we performed a detailed clinicopathological survey in our series(More)
The cellular prion protein (PrPC) is a ubiquitous protein whose expression in the adult brain occurs mainly in synapses. We used monoclonal antibodies to study fetal and perinatal PrPC expression in the human forebrain. Double immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy with GFAP, Iba1, MAP2, doublecortin, synaptophysin, and GAP-43 were used to localize(More)
Infantile cortical hyperostosis (Caffey disease) is benign and self-limiting when it presents near or after birth but it is usually lethal when it presents earlier. We present the clinical, ultrasonic, radiographic, and pathologic findings in an instructive case of early onset prenatal cortical hyperostosis. The pregnancy of a 21-year-old woman was(More)
BACKGROUND Non-progressive congenital ataxias (NPCA) with or without intellectual disability (ID) are clinically and genetically heterogeneous conditions. As a consequence, the identification of the genes responsible for these phenotypes remained limited. OBJECTIVE Identification of a new gene responsible for NPCA and ID. Methods Following the discovery(More)
Oral-facial-digital syndrome type VI (OFD VI) is a recessive ciliopathy defined by two diagnostic criteria: molar tooth sign (MTS) and one or more of the following: (1) tongue hamartoma (s) and/or additional frenula and/or upper lip notch; (2) mesoaxial polydactyly of one or more hands or feet; (3) hypothalamic hamartoma. Because of the MTS, OFD VI belongs(More)
Oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) deficiency may have early antenatal manifestations, probably related to the time course and/or tissue specificity of the disease gene expression during the embryo-fetal period. This feature hampers a fully reliable prenatal enzymological diagnosis of OXPHOS deficiency. We have studied OXPHOS in various human fetal tissues(More)
