A child with a germline duplication of chromosome 2p, 46,XY,der(13)t(2;13)(p23;q34), who developed a fatal neuroblastoma confirmed at necropsy is reported. Fluorescent in situ hybridisation studies showed chromosome 2p (p23-pter) duplicated on chromosome 13 (q34). The clinical features of the present case shared many similarities to previous reports of(More)
We describe three patients with the cutaneous manifestations of hypomelanosis of Ito. Two, with unusual abnormalities of their toes, had a mixture of diploid and triploid cells in cultured skin fibroblasts. The published clinical descriptions of hypomelanosis of Ito and diploid-triploid mosaicism are reviewed. Chromosome heteromorphisms, HLA types, and DNA(More)
INTRODUCTION Therapeutic approaches to lung cancer are evolving, with personalized therapy, based on "molecular analysis" of tumors being developed. Given that approximately 90% of patients will not undergo surgery for their disease, an ability to apply these tests to small samples obtained at the time of initial pathological diagnosis is desirable. Studies(More)
A baby with Wiedemann-Beckwith syndrome (WBS) and her phenotypically normal mother carried the same paracentric inversion, inv(11)(p11.2 15.5), in the short arm of chromosome 11. A fetus, sib of the affected baby, had the same inversion and ultrasound scan showed exomphalos. The maternal grandmother is clinically and cytogenetically normal. The pattern of(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To determine the prognostic value of hypoxia-associated markers carbonic anhydrase-9 (CA-9) and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) in advanced larynx and hypopharynx squamous cell carcinoma (SCCa) treated by organ preservation strategies. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. METHODS Pretreatment CA-9 and HIF-1α expression,(More)
Abnormalities of chromosome region 15q11-13 are associated with Angelman syndrome (AS) and Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). Differences between the methylation patterns of the region of chromosome 15q11-13 which hybridizes to the highly conserved DNA, DN34, in normal individuals and in patients with AS and PWS have been described. We report on a family in which(More)
