Molecular characterization of a 130-kb terminal microdeletion at 22q in a child with mild mental retardation.


We have analyzed a recently described 22q13.3 microdeletion in a child with some overlapping features of the cytologically visible 22q13.3 deletion syndrome. Patient NT, who shows mild mental retardation and delay of expressive speech, was previously found to have a paternal microdeletion in the subtelomeric region of 22q. In order to characterize this… (More)
