Mesoaxial synostotic syndactyly, Malik-Percin type (MSSD) (syndactyly type IX) is a rare autosomal-recessive nonsyndromic digit anomaly with only two affected families reported so far. We previously showed that the trait is genetically distinct from other syndactyly types, and through autozygosity mapping we had identified a locus on chromosome 17p13.3 for(More)
Congenital hypoplasia of thumb is rare malformation which is less likely to appear as an isolated entity. Four independent subjects exhibiting various grades of underdeveloped first digital ray were recruited. The affected autopods had narrow palms, medial or valgus inclinations of index fingers and thenar weakness, while the postaxial digits were least(More)
This paper is about privacy preservation of the data in OLAP data cube. Data cube is a multidimensional view of a database, which helps in analysis of data from different perspectives. Preserving privacy of individual's data while providing all data available for the analysis is one of the main challenges for OLAP systems. Because legitimate queries on(More)
We report on nine members of a consanguineous Pakistani family with primary presentation of intellectual disability, developmental delay, limb and gait ataxia, behavioral and speech problems, and tremor. By linkage mapping and exome sequencing we identified novel homozygous splicing variant c.6375-1G>C in SPTBN2. To date, only two other SPTBN2 mutations(More)
Primary microcephaly is clinically variable and genetically heterogeneous. Four phenotypically distinct types of autosomal recessive microcephaly syndromes are due to different RBBP8 mutations. We report on a consanguineous Pakistani family with homozygous RBBP8 mutation c.1808_1809delTA (p.Ile603Lysfs*7) manifesting microcephaly and a distinct combination(More)
Polydactyly is a phenotypically and genetically highly heterogeneous limb malformation with preaxial and postaxial subtypes and subtypes A and B. Most polydactyly entities are associated with GLI3 mutation. We report on 10 affected individuals from a large Pakistani kindred initially evaluated as a possible new condition. The phenotype is postaxial(More)
Grebe syndrome (OMIM-200700) is a very rare type of acromesomelic dysplasia with autosomal recessive inheritance. We studied a Pakistani family with two affected individuals having typical features of Grebe chondrodysplasia. Patients were observed with short and deformed limbs having a proximo-distal gradient of severity. Hind-limbs were more severely(More)
