DiGeorge syndrome is associated with microdeletion of chromosome 22q11.2. Most cases occur sporadically although vertical transmission has been documented. We report a rare case of DiGeorge syndrome in an 8-year-old girl. Blood sample of the patient was cultured and harvested following standard procedure. All of the 20 cells analysed showed a karyotype of(More)
BACKGROUND The World Health Organization (WHO) classification system defines recurrent chromosomal translocations as the sole diagnostic and prognostic criteria for acute leukemia (AL). These fusion transcripts are pivotal in the pathogenesis of AL. Clinical laboratories universally employ conventional karyotype/FISH to detect these chromosomal(More)
In this report we demonstrate the role of fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) and conventional cytogenetic methods in clinically and cytogenetically confirmed cases of microdeletion syndromes. A total of nine cases were referred to the Cytopathology and Cytogenetic Unit, Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) from 2002 to 2004. They include(More)
