Primary erythermalgia is a rare disorder characterized by recurrent attacks of red, warm, and painful hands and/or feet. The symptoms are generally refractory to treatment and persist throughout life. Five kindreds with multiple cases of primary erythermalgia were identified, and the largest was subjected to a genomewide search. We detected strong evidence(More)
We report three unrelated patients with small terminal deletions involving 1p36.22-->pter that occurred de novo and compare our patients to the 10 previously reported cases. Although our patients have an identical cytogenetic deletion, patients 1 and 2 share similar clinical features that differ substantially from patient 3. Our patients confirm the(More)
Chromosome banding studies on 60 children with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), including "null," pre-B, B, and T cell phenotypes, were performed. In 4 of 17 patients with pre-B cell ALL, we noted a previously undescribed chromosome translocation, t(1;19)(q23;q13). This translocation was not found in patients with "null" cell, B cell, or T cell ALL. Since(More)
We present a kindred of 29 persons affected with erythromelalgia (erythermalgia) in 5 generations. This paper updates the family reported by Burbank et al. [1966]. Patients have symptoms of intermittent intense burning limb pain related to increased skin temperature. No successful treatment has been identified, and the pathogenetic mechanism has not been(More)
Birth defects in live-born infants were documented for 2 years in Jefferson County, Alabama (USA)--1986 and 1987--and in Uppsala County, Sweden--1985 and 1986. A total of 27,561 live births (9,179 white male, 8,728 white female, 4,883 black male, and 4,771 black female infants) occurred in Jefferson County; 6,896 live births (3,535 male and 3,361 female)(More)
The chromosomal location of SCN5A, the gene encoding the principal voltage-gated Na+ channel expressed in human heart, has been determined by three independent methodologies: somatic cell hybrid mapping, chromosomal microdissection-polymerase chain reaction, and fluorescence in situ hybridization. The SCN5A gene was assigned to the short arm of chromosome 3(More)
