We report on a clinical and molecular cytogenetic study of a patient who presents a complex chromosomal rearrangement with two different cell lines. Using high-resolution GTG banding and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with several probes, including bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs), the karyotype was defined as(More)
Several authors have attempted to characterize the partial 1q trisomy syndrome, reporting clinical features such as mental retardation, macrocephaly, large fontanels, prominent forehead, broad flat nasal bridge, high-arched palate, micro/retrognathia, low-set ears, and cardiac defects. However, defining the partial trisomy 1q syndrome is difficult, because(More)
Patients with fragile X syndrome present a variable phenotype, which contributes to the underdiagnosing of this condition. The use of clinical checklists in individuals with intellectual disability can help in selecting patients to be given priority in the molecular investigation of the fragile X mutation in the FMR1 gene. Some features included in(More)
Deletions in region 22q11.2 usually occur between two low copy repeat regions (LCRs), which are preferred chromosome sites for rearrangements. Most of the deletions encompass the same approximately 3 or approximately 1.5 Mb region, with breakpoints at LCR A and D or at LCR A and B, respectively. We report on a patient with clinical features of the 22q(More)
We report on the case of a patient with a typical de novo 3 Mb 22q11.2 deletion. Haplotype reconstruction of the family, using polymorphic markers flanking the deleted region, demonstrated a complex mechanism of origin of the deletion, involving one intrachromosomal and two interchromosomal events.
