In a 6-year-old girl referred because of mild motor delay and hyperextensible joints, chromosome analysis disclosed a derivative chromosome consisting of end-to-end fusion of chromosomes 2 and 14. Two cell lines existed in which this telomere association was present, one with a 45,XX,tas(2;14)(q37;p11) karyotype and one with a 45,XX,tas(2;14) (q37;q32) karyotype. The cell line with the telomeric fusion of 2q and 14p was present in 90% of the cells; a telomeric fusion of 2q and 14q was seen in… CONTINUE READING
