We report a case of "mirror-image" gastroschisis in female monochorionic twins. One of the twins presents a right-sided gastroschisis, the other a left-sided gastroschisis. Both twins have anteriorly placed anus and sacral dimple. To the best of our knowledge, this represents the first case of mirror image or discordant left and right gastroschisis in… (More)
Trisomy 13 is a chromosomal disorder characterized by a severe clinical picture of multiple congenital anomalies. We here describe the clinical and genetic features and prognosis observed in a newborn with trisomy 13 from Central Africa. He presented the rare feature of preaxial polydactyly of the feet.
One hundred and one patients with complete or incomplete cleft lip underwent the anatomical subunit approximation technique for repair. The patients were followed up prospectively for 1year. The objective of this study was to determine the outcomes for the nasolabial area through anthropometric measurements and assessment of the Asher-McDade Aesthetic Index… (More)
The evaluation of facial dysmorphism is a critical step toward reaching a diagnostic. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the ability to interpret facial morphology in African children with intellectual disability (ID). First, 10 experienced clinicians (five from Africa and five from Europe) rated gestalt in 127 African non-Down Syndrome (non-DS)… (More)
Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is a rare congenital syndrome characterized by an overgrowth, macroglossia, exomphalos, and predisposition to embryonal tumors. Central nervous abnormalities associated with BWS are rare. We describe a one-day-old Congolese female who presented meningocele associated with BWS phenotype.
Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS) is a multiple congenital anomaly-intellectual disability syndrome caused by a deletion involving chromosome 4p16.3. We report clinical and genetic findings of the first WHS patient diagnosed in central Africa. This boy who presented with cleft palate, microcephaly, severe growth delay, and intellectual disability was 12 years… (More)
