We report on a 3-year-old girl with a de novo complex X chromosome rearrangement associated with congenital pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) and short stature. Array comparative genome hybridization and FISH analyses contributed to characterize the complex rearrangement consisting of a 7.37 Mb terminal deletion of Xp22.33p22.2, a 17.3 Mb interstitial(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our study was to describe a large population with anomalies involving the SHOX region, responsible for idiopathic short stature and Léri-Weill dyschondrosteosis (LWD), and to identify a possible genotype/phenotype correlation. METHODS We performed a retrospective multicenter study on French subjects with a SHOX region anomaly(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Transient idiopathic hyperglycaemia (TIH) is partly due to defective processing of proinsulin to insulin in preterm neonates, whereas transient neonatal diabetes mellitus (TNDM) is a rare genetic form of pancreatic β-cell dysfunction. Distinguishing these two conditions is difficult yet essential to allow personalised management and genetic(More)
Macrozoospermia is characterized by a high proportion of abnormal spermatozoa with enlarged heads. So far, it has been associated with mutations only in the Aurora Kinase C gene (AURKC) in some cases. Although many publications have reported failure to conceive in couples with macrozoospermia, a few others have described successful pregnancies, thus raising(More)
