KBG syndrome is characterized by short stature, distinctive facial features, and developmental/cognitive delay and is caused by mutations in ANKRD11, one of the ankyrin repeat-containing cofactors. We describe 32 KBG patients aged 2-47 years from 27 families ascertained via two pathways: targeted ANKRD11 sequencing (TS) in a group who had a clinical(More)

Symptoms of rhabdomyosarcoma can be indolent and nonspecific, even with metastatic disease. Echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging are explored as adjuncts to diagnosis.(More)
Submicroscopic deletions within chromosome 1q24q25 are associated with a syndromic phenotype of short stature, brachydactyly, learning difficulties, and facial dysmorphism. The critical region for the deletion phenotype has previously been narrowed to a 1.9 Mb segment containing 13 genes. We describe two further patients with 1q24 microdeletions and the(More)
BACKGROUND Poikiloderma is defined as a chronic skin condition presenting with a combination of punctate atrophy, areas of depigmentation, hyperpigmentation and telangiectasia. In a variety of hereditary syndromes such as Rothmund-Thomson syndrome (RTS), Clericuzio-type poikiloderma with neutropenia (PN) and Dyskeratosis Congenita (DC), poikiloderma occurs(More)
