Crigler-Najjar (CN) syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive inherited disorder characterized by non-hemolytic, unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. The levels of serum bilirubin and the response to phenobarbital treatment have been used to classify CN syndrome into two types: CN I and II. Mutations of the UGT1A1 gene(More)
1 patient with SSPE at 4 y. He had had measles and measles encephalitis at 7.5 months. In China, the first and the second measles immunizations are recommended at 8 months and at 18-24 months, respectively. We recommend above immunizations should be given separately at 6 months and at 12-15 months.
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is one of the most common autosomal recessive diseases. Survival motor neuron1 (SMN1) is the SMA disease-determining gene. We examined the molecular basis of SMA in 113 Chinese SMA patients. Homozygous exon 7 and 8 deletions in SMN1 were detected by PCR-RFLP. Heterozygous deletion of SMN1 was analyzed based on variation of the(More)
Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a rare autosomal dominant inherited disorder characterized by gastrointestinal polyposis and mucocutaneous pigmentation. PJS patients have an increased risk of cancer in multiple locations. Germ-line mutations in the STK11 gene have been found to be responsible for most PJS cases. DNA samples were obtained from a Chinese(More)
Joubert syndrome (JS) is a rare, complex autosomal recessive inherited disorder mostly characterized by partial or complete agenesis of the cerebellar vermis. There is a wide clinical and genetic heterogeneity in the syndrome. The main clinical features of JS are hypotonia, ataxia, developmental delay, oculomotor apraxia, breathing abnormalities and(More)
