WNT10A has been associated with various syndromes with ectodermal dysplasia from severe autosomal recessive SchO?pf-Schulz-Passarge syndrome to odonto-onycho-dermal dysplasia and autosomal dominant hypodontia. We report WNT10A mutations in an American family of which four members are affected with isolated hypodontia or microdontia. Here we demonstrate that(More)
Analysis of the literature yielded 42 examples of the combination of sternal non-union and supraumbilical raphé without evidence of sex predilection. However, among an additional 31 cases in which the triad included facial hemangioma, there was almost exclusive female occurrence. Another condition involves extensive unilateral hemangioma of the face,(More)
Mesomelic dysplasia Kantaputra type (MDK) is characterized by marked mesomelic shortening of the upper and lower limbs originally described in a Thai family. To identify the cause of MDK, we performed array CGH and identified two microduplications on chromosome 2 (2q31.1-q31.2) encompassing ∼481 and 507 kb, separated by a segment of normal copy number. The(More)
We report a Thai girl who had aglossia, micrognathia, microsomia, collapse of mandibular arch, persistence of buccopharyngeal membrane, microcephaly, and mild developmental delay. Thyroid function tests indicated that she had subclinical hypothyroidism. Thyroid scan revealed normal uptake of the whole thyroid gland. Tongue morphogenesis is integrally linked(More)
We report a follow up study on two MOPD II Thai families with severe dental anomalies and hypoplastic alveolar bone. Striking dental anomalies comprise severe microdontia, opalescent and abnormally shaped teeth, and rootless molars. As a result of severe hypoplastic alveolar bone, most permanent teeth have been lost. Mutation analysis of PCNT revealed 2(More)
To assess oral manifestations of 17 patients with mucopolysaccharidosis type VI (MPS VI) or Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome. We performed comprehensive oral examinations in 17 patients with MPS VI. Panoramic radiographs was performed only in 14 patients. All patients were of Thai, Turkish, and Indian origins. Ten of 17 patients had enzyme replacement therapy (ERT)(More)
A new type of mesomelic dysplasia was in 3 generations of a large Thai family. It is characterized by bilateral symmetrical marked shortening of the ulnae and shortening and bowing of the radii. The proximal fibula is usually short and synostoses are present between the tibia and fibula and the small malformed calcaneus and talus. The prominent calcanei on(More)
A four-generation Thai family affected with Van der Woude syndrome is reported. The disorder appeared to be originally inherited from a person who was half Thai and half Pakistani. The lip lesions found in this family were varied and did not appear to be related to other phenotypes. There were some clinical manifestations possibly specific for the condition(More)
PURPOSE Many behavior management techniques (BMTs) are used in dental offices. The objective of this study was to evaluate how children felt towards the BMT used in the dental office by using the newly invented "attitude meter." METHODS Two hundred forty children 6 to 17 years old were selected randomly to participate in the study. Each student was asked(More)
Molarization and premolarization of anterior teeth have never been reported before. Double dens invaginatus is an extremely rare condition. We describe an affected female who had developmental delay and congenital progressive sensorineural hearing loss. Double dens invaginatus of molarized maxillary central incisors and premolarized maxillary lateral(More)
