Branchio-oto-renal (BOR) syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by branchial, ear, and renal anomalies. Over 80 mutations in EYA1 have been reported in BOR. Mutations in SIX1, a DNA binding protein that associates with EYA1, have been reported less frequently. One group has recently described four missense mutations in SIX5 in five(More)
Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) is a rare congenital malformation disorder. About half of the patients with CdLS carry mutations in the NIPBL gene encoding the NIPBL protein, a subunit of the Cohesin loading complex. Recent studies show association of Cohesin with chromatin-remodeling complexes, either by establishing cohesion or by recruiting Cohesin to(More)
A patient treated with disopyramide presented with hypoglycaemia, a raised serum insulin level and died of pneumonia. From these findings and a review of 10 case reports, we propose that disopyramide causes hypoglycaemia by stimulation of insulin release as described for the antimalarial drugs quinine and quinidine.
Incontinentia pigmenti (IP) is a rare X-linked genodermatosis in which skin changes are combined with anomalies of other tissues, mainly of ectodermal origin. Mutations of the IKBKG gene are responsible for IP. Haematological disorders among IP patients are rare. Four female patients from a single family, with typical clinical characteristics of IP, are(More)
