Cobblestone lissencephaly is the characteristic brain malformation observed in Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy (FCMD), muscle-eye-brain disease (MEB), and Walker-Warburg syndrome (WWS). The diagnostic criteria for all three require the presence of congenital muscular dystrophy, and criteria for MEB and WWS require retinal abnormalities. We report(More)
Deletions of chromosome 18q are among the most common segmental aneusomies compatible with life. The estimated frequency is approximately 1/40,000 live births [Cody JD, Pierce JF, Brkanac Z, Plaetke R, Ghidoni PD, Kaye CI, Leach RJ. 1997. Am. J. Med. Genet. 69:280-286]. Most deletions are terminal encompassing as much as 36 Mb, but interstitial deletions(More)
Although constitutional chromosome abnormalities have been recognized since the 1960s, clinical characterization and development of treatment options have been hampered by their obvious genetic complexity and relative rarity. Additionally, deletions of 18q are particularly heterogeneous, with no two people having the same breakpoints. We identified 16(More)
We report on a 5-month-old boy with a de novo interstitial deletion of the proximal short arm of chromosome 8 (p21p11.2). He manifested bilateral cleft lip and palate, and apparent hypogonadism. Four previous case reports with similar deletions (p11.1p21) were associated with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism [Beighle et al., Hum Genet 38:113-121, 1977] and(More)
