Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS) is a congenital imprinting disorder characterized by intrauterine and postnatal growth restriction and further characteristic features. SRS is genetically heterogenous: 7-10% of patients carry a maternal uniparental disomy of chromosome 7; >38% show a hypomethylation in imprinting control region 1 in 11p15; and a further class of mutations are copy number variations affecting different chromosomes, but mainly 11p15 and 7. The diagnostic work-up should thus aim to… CONTINUE READING
