Five members from 3 generations, including a 35-year-old woman and her 2 sons, both mentally impaired to a different degree, were studied in a tertiary care hospital. Anamnestic, clinical, neurological, and radiological evaluations were used to describe phenotypes. A and B postaxial polydactyly, transmitted likely as autosomal dominant, was associated with(More)
Otosclerosis is the single most common cause of hearing impairment among adult caucasians. Little is known about its aetiology and its molecular aspects. Until now, genetic linkage in otosclerosis has been demonstrated in an Indian family and a Belgian family, showing the presence of two otosclerosis loci, OTSC1 and OTSC2, respectively. Linkage analysis has(More)

The 18q- syndrome [MIM #601808] is a terminal deletion of the long arm of chromosome 18. The most common deletion extends from region q21 to qter. We report here a nine-year-old boy possessing a simple 18q- deletion who had abnormalities of the brain, skull, face, tooth, hair, bone, and skin, plus joint laxity, tongue palsy, subtle sensoneural deafness,(More)
In our Clinic, from 1987 up to 1993, 296 patients suffering from otosclerotic disease underwent stapedotomy, either using a classical or modified technique. The Authors reported the almost total disappearance of post-operative vertiginous symptomatology and a very good functional recovery; they believe that the placing of the prosthesis before disjointing(More)
OBJECTIVE Case study of a CNS impairment lacking in presumptive cause; case presents with a clinical phenotype encompassing multiple differently expressed and combined symptoms, as well as a subtle skin defect. MATERIALS AND METHODS A 6-year-old male with apparently isolated mental delay, speech delay, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy,(More)
UNLABELLED Global developmental delay is a serious social problem. It is often unrecognized and the phenotypes are inadequately studied. To investigate the phenotypes of children with aspecific central nervous system (CNS) impairment (poor speech, maladaptive behavioral symptoms such as temper tantrums, aggressiveness, poor concentration and attention,(More)
High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is a nuclear non-histone protein, playing a critical role as a mediator between innate and acquired immunity; when released extracellularly, it coordinates the cellular stress response (under necrosis, bacterial lipopolysaccharide stimulation) and acts as an inflammatory marker and cytokine. The aim of the study was to(More)
