Copy number changes of subtelomeric regions are a common cause of mental retardation, occurring in approximately 5% of mentally retarded patients. New molecular techniques allow the identification of subtelomeric microduplications. We report a Tunisian family of three sisters with moderate mental retardation, facial dysmorphism, cardiopathy, and bilateral… CONTINUE READING
