We report on a 3-year-old boy with moderate developmental retardation, microcephaly, and malformations of ears, lids, mouth, and thumbs. Cytogenetic analysis demonstrated a direct duplication of chromosome subregion 4(q21.3-->q31.3). Confirmation of this specific rearrangement was performed by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) with a chromosome(More)
The so-called leakage-chain rule is a very important tool used in many security proofs. It gives an upper bound on the entropy loss of a random variable X in case the adversary who having already learned some random variables Z1,. .. , Z ℓ correlated with X, obtains some further information Z ℓ+1 about X. Analogously to the information-theoretic case, one(More)
We present a case of a 40-year old woman diagnosed with a four-place spontaneous paraganglioma-pheochromocytoma syndrome, which was treated surgically. The presence of the succinate dehydrogenase complex subunit D (SDHD) mutation that causes the pheochromocytoma was confirmed but no mutations in the family members were found. After the excision of the(More)
