We report four infants (two males, two females) with ring 14 chromosome presenting with early-onset partial epilepsy. The first seizure occurred between 3 and 6 months (3, 3, 4, and 6mo respectively). In all four cases, diagnosis was based on early focal seizures, rather than on psychomotor retardation or morphological features, which were not prominent at(More)
BACKGROUND Early onset epileptic encephalopathies (EOEEs) are dramatic heterogeneous conditions in which aetiology, seizures and/or interictal EEG have a negative impact on neurological development. Several genes have been associated with EOEE and a molecular diagnosis workup is challenging since similar phenotypes are associated with mutations in different(More)
An expert system called LAIT-XPERT VACHES, developed to evaluate technical management of dairy enterprises, was tested using case data. The expertise of the system was provided from information obtained from interviews of three dairy management or nutrition experts. LAIT-XPERT VACHES contains over 950 rules and runs on IBM-compatible personal computers. It(More)
Seipinopathies are a group of inherited diseases affecting upper and lower motor neurons due to mutations in the Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy 2 gene (BSCL2). We report a French family carrying the N88S mutation in the BSCL2 gene. A 12-yr-old girl complained of bilateral asymmetrical pes cavus with right hand motor deficit and amyotrophy,(More)
BACKGROUND Hereditary Fibrosing Poikiloderma (HFP) with tendon contractures, myopathy and pulmonary fibrosis (POIKTMP [MIM 615704]) is a very recently described entity of syndromic inherited poikiloderma. Previously by using whole exome sequencing in five families, we identified the causative gene, FAM111B (NM_198947.3), the function of which is still(More)
