Bloom's syndrome is a genodermatosis characterized by a telangiectatic erythema of the face beginning in infancy, sensitivity to sunlight, small stature, and a low birth weight after a full-term gestation. A structural chromosome abnormality and an increased incidence of leukemia are associated. A classical example of this syndrome is presented in a patient who also exhibited low yA and γM levels in the serum. Bloom's syndrome is compared with four other syndromes that have some similarity to… Expand
Bloom Syndrome in Two Siblings

Questionable bloom syndrome in a Negro girl.
TLDR
The Bloom syndrome is described here for the first time in a Negro; the patient did not manifest telangiectatic erythema, one of the cardinal features of the syndrome, but it is contended that her condition satisfies the other two major criteria of the Bloom syndrome and multiple minor criteria, including parental consanguinity and chromosomal changes. Expand
A case of Bloom syndrome with uncommon clinical manifestations confirmed on genetic testing.
TLDR
A case of Bloom syndrome with uncommon clinical manifestations including alopecia areata, eyebrow hair loss, flat nose, reticular pigmentation, and short sharpened distal phalanges with fingernails that were wider than they were long is presented. Expand

TLDR
The clinical features, follow up, and laboratory investigations of a case of Bloom's Syndrome, originally known as congenital telangiectatic ery thema resembling lupus erythematosus in dwarfs, are presented in a six‐year‐old girl. Expand
Rothmund–Thomson Syndrome with Myelodysplasia
TLDR
A patient with RTS and myelodysplasia is reported, the second reported case of an association between these two conditions, which are both likely to be due to a common etiologic cause of nonrepair of stem cell DNA damage. Expand
Lupus-like histopathology in bloom syndrome: reexamining the clinical and histologic implications of photosensitivity.
TLDR
A patient with Bloom syndrome whose lupus-like facial rash revealed striking histopathologic similarities to cutaneous l upus erythematosus is reported. Expand
Bloom's syndrome. Possible pitfalls in clinical diagnosis.
TLDR
Treatment of two patients with Bloom's syndrome and extensive endocrine studies, which studied longitudinal growth and pubertal development and the effect of exogenous human growth hormone on growth velocity, confirmed that measurement of the frequency of sister chromatid exchanges is essential in patients with growth retardation of intrauterine origin. Expand
Cytogenetische, immunologische und cytologische Familienuntersuchungen bei Bloom-Syndrom
TLDR
The lymphocytes of both patients and parents responded normally to PHA, but several cultures of the boy's parents and 5 out of 7 cultures from the boy failed to respond, maybe because of pronounced susceptibility to exogenous disturbance. Expand

TLDR
Here, the aim is to provide patients admitted to the clinic with hand hypoplasia with a diagnosis of silver-Russell syndrome and to provide treatment for genetic disorders, such as Turner mosaicism. Expand
