Although the defects observed in this case follow the diagnostic criteria for Fraser syndrome proposed by Thomas et al. [1986:(More)

Authors have studied 45 babies born during past five years to drug-addicted mothers. Increase in number han been remarkable: from 0.095 per thousand live births in 1980 to 1.57 in 1984. There was and 16.3% incidence for preterm infants, 34.8% for low birth weight and 18.6% were small for gestational age. One third (30.2%) suffered infections, mostly sepsis.(More)
Authors report two patients from different families who present similar abnormalities caused by an "almost complete" trisomy of the short arm of chromosome 5 [case No. 1: 46, XY, der (20), t (5; 20) (p11;p13), mat; case No.2: 46, XY, dup (5p)]. Several family members of case No. 1 were balanced translocation carriers. Case No. 2 is probably due to de novo(More)
