Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is caused by dysregulation of imprinted genes on chromosome 11.p15.5. The syndrome includes overgrowth, macroglossia, organomegaly, abdominal wall defects, hypoglycemia, and long-term malignancy risk. No patient who has BWS has been reported with hypopituitarism. We describe a patient who presented at birth with macrosomia, macroglossia, respiratory distress, jaundice, and hypoglycemia, and who was followed for 4.5 years. Genetic test for BWS was performed…

Severe hypothyroidism developing in an infant with hepatoblastoma and Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome: could there be a link?
• 2 weeks: commenced Cisplatin / Doxorubicin • Liver transplant discussed for curative treatment. • Array CGH: 16p11.2 microduplication  maternally inherited not clinically significant. •
(Epi)genotype–phenotype correlations in Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome: a paradigm for genomic medicine
TLDR
The differences observed in the phenotypic profiles of BWS molecular subtypes allow a composite view of this syndrome with implications on clinical care, diagnosis, follow‐up, and management, and provide directions for future disease monitoring.

TLDR
A number of case reports provide data on the metabolic aspects of Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, and Hyperinsulinism and BWS is the cause of both transient and prolonged hypoglycaemia in BWS.
46,XX ovotesticular disorder in a Mexican patient with Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome: a case report
TLDR
This case report describes, for the first time, the unusual association of ovotesticular disorder in a patient from Morelia, Mexico with Wiedemann-Beckwith syndrome.
Inherited microdeletions that give rise to Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome
TLDR
People with inherited microdeletions that cause BWS when maternally transmitted are described, and the classic imprinting disorders of Prader–Willi syndrome and Angelman’s syndrome can arise from inheriting microdelets that result in a loss of imprinting.
Brain abnormalities in patients with Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome
TLDR
It is suggested that brain malformations may present as a finding within the BWS phenotype when the molecular etiology involves imprinted domain 2 at 11p15.5, which is involved in normal midline development of several organs including the brain.
Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome in association with posterior hypoplasia of the cerebellar vermis
TLDR
A 28-year-old woman with an unremarkable medical and obstetrical history is diagnosed with Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome (BWS), and her pregnancy is terminated because of the poor prognosis of these morphological abnormalities.
Beckwith Wiedemann syndrome: presentation of a case report.
TLDR
The case of a 1 year-old child who consults this service with a diagnosis of macroglossia associated with BWS is presented, and the improvement of the prenatal diagnostic techniques are presented.
Beckwith Wiedemann syndrome: presentation of a case report.
TLDR
The case of a 1 year-old child who consults this service with a diagnosis of macroglossia associated with BWS is presented, and the improvement of the prenatal diagnostic techniques are presented.
Epigenotype-phenotype correlations in Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome
TLDR
A large series of sporadic cases is analysed to define the frequency and phenotypic correlates of epigenetic abnormalities in BWS and how variations in phenotypesic expression of BWS may be linked to specific molecular subgroups and molecular analysis of B WS can provide insights into mechanisms of imprinting regulation.
Hyperinsulinaemic Hypoglycaemia: Genetic Mechanisms, Diagnosis and Management
TLDR
An overview of the molecular basis of CHI is provided and the clinical presentation, diagnostic criteria, and management of patients with congenital forms of hyperinsulinism are outlined.
Genetic Analysis of Tall Stature
TLDR
The FMR1 gene should be analyzed in patients with tall stature and mental retardation, and in these patients the NSD1 gene can be considered whenever some features of Sotos syndrome do exist.
