We report the genetic characterization of one family with blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) type 1 and two families with BPES type 2 from a historically isolated population in northwest Colombia. Linkage and haplotype analyses indicate that BPES in these families is linked to 3q23. Mutation screening of FOXL2 in the family with(More)
Fifty sets of photographs showing facial features of Caucasian males aged 18 to 60 years were examined to establish a morphological classification of the face. It is suggested that such a classification could assist facial identification by photocomparison. The selection criteria stress the importance of interassessor agreement and discrimination among(More)

Hypostasis was measured in 93 cadavers using a tristimulus colorimeter in order to investigate its relationship with the time of death. The intensity (lightness) of the hypostasis in each case was measured over a period of 4 h and the rate of change in lightness derived. When examined against the time of death, it was found that there was a good correlation(More)
Primitive neuroectodermal or neuroepithelial tumors are names used to describe neoplasias composed of undifferentiated cells resembling germinal cells of the embryonic neural tube. These tumors are small round cell malignancies of the neural crest origin arising outside the central and sympathetic nervous system. They are described as peripheral and central(More)
