Polydactyly is among comnion extremity abnormalities. Mutations of GLI3 gene have been reported commonly in Greig Cephalopolysyndactyly Syndrome (GCPS) and Pallister-Hall Syndrome (PHS). We have determined two different mutations of GLI3 gene in two different cases, one of which is with GCPS and the other one is with PHS. A deletion mutation was detected in the proband with GCPS and his mother. Otherwise, we found that, unlike the previously reported, the mutation c.2437C>T, p.Q813X which was detected in the GLI3 gene caused typical PHS...

A Thanatophoric dysplasia, is a severe congenital anomaly which mostly causes stillbirth or death of the affected baby within hours due to respiratory insufficiency. The diagnosis of TD is typically suspected on ultrasound during the second trimester of pregnancy, when severe shortening of the long bones, frontal bossing, flattened vertebrae, and short ribs that result in a narrow thorax and bell-shaped abdomen, can be seen. Here, we present a case with prenatal ultrasonographic findings suggestive of TD, and highlight the patient's postnatal dysmorphic features and typical radiographic findings...

GRACILE Syndrome, is an autosomal recessive disease presenting with growth retardation, severe lactic acidosis, Fanconi type tubulopathy, cholestasis, iron overload and early death without any dysmorphological or neurological features. The BCSIL gene mutation is responsible for GRACILE syndrome, Bjornstad syndrome and complex III deficiency. Bjomstad syndrome is characterized by sensorineural hearing loss and abnormal flat twisted hair shafts. The case is GRACILE syndrome with Bjomstad phenotype in neonatal period due to BCSL1 gene mutation...

Duplication 17pll.2 syndrome is a recent recognized syndrome with multiple congenital anomalies and mental retardation. Most patients with duplication 17p11.2 syndrome harbor a common 3.7 Mb duplication (17p.11.2 duplication syndrome) resulting in congenital anomalies, neurodevelopmental and behavioral phenotypes. We report a case with spina bifida, tetralogy of Fallot and a small duplication (932 Kb) of 17pl1.2 containing approximately 20 genes, detected by array-CGH. We describe clinical features not reported previously for microduplication of 17p11...

Barth syndrome (BTHS) is an X-linked recessive disease caused by mutations in tafazzin gene (TAZ) which lead to cardiolipin deficiency and mitochondrial dysfunction. Male patients have variable clinical findings, including cardiomyopathy, skeletal myopathy, prepubertal short stature, neutropenia and 3-methylglutaconic aciduria. Female carriers are usually asymptomatic. We report a novel TAZ gene mutation in male and female siblings with left ventricular noncompaction and hypotonia. Additionally, the brother presented an intermittent neutropenia and increased urinary levels of 3-methylglutaconic and 3-methylglutaric acid...

Pantothenate-kinase-associated neurodegeneration (PKAN) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the pantothenate kinase 2 (PANK2) gene. Many different mutations in the PANK2 gene have been detected in association with PKAN. A 20 year old female patient who had been suffering from progressive gait disorder for 1 year was found to have the 'eye-of-the-tiger sign' from the brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The same brain imaging findings were shown in the father and brother of the patient, whose parents arranged a consanguineous marriage...

We here present a rare case of a Turner syndrome with mosaic trisomy 15 identified on chorionic villous sampling (CVS). Although there are several reports in the literature indicating confined placental mosaicism (CPM), counseling parents of a fetus with trisomy 15 mosaicism at CVS remains difficult because of the phenotypic variability. To illuminate that condition an amniocentesis or cord blood study should be offered in conjunction with genetic counseling.

SHORT syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disorder whose acronym stands for short stature, hyperextensibility of joints and/or hernias, ocular depression, Rieger anomaly, and teething delay. Common clinical features include intrauterine and postnatal growth restriction, lipoatrophy, characteristic facial gestalt, anterior chamber defects and insulin resistance/diabetes. To date, the coexistence of SHORT syndrome and unilateral basal ganglia calcification has not been reported. Here, we describe a 27-year-old woman bom to healthy first-cousin Mexican parents who exhibited the SHORT syndrome phenotype and unilateral basal ganglia calcification...

Rett syndrome (RTT) and Angelman syndrome (AS) are devastating neurological disorders that participate in overlapping clinical features with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). It has been reported that in addition to common mutations or deletions, individuals with chromosomal duplications including either the MECP2 or UBE3A loci show clinical features related to those of MECP2 duplication syndrome, AS, or ASDs. Here we report a 10-year--10-months old male patient having overlapping clinical features of MECP2 duplication syndrome, AS and ASDs...

The aim of this study is to review and evaluate our preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) records in terms of their demographic data, indications, cytogenetic results, pregnancy outcomes and discuss these findings in different aspects. PGS was performed in a total of 84 couples (87 cycles) between the period 2005 to 2015. Biopsied blastomeres from embryos on day 3 were fixed and fluorescence in situ hybridization was carried out for chromosomes 13, 16, 18, 21, 22, X and Y depending on the indication. The diagnostic and clinical data were retrospectively evaluated...

We set out to evaluate multiplex ligation dependent probe amplification (MLPA) as a tool for diagnosis and carrier detection in families with a dystrophinopathy. Fifty three Indian families with provisional diagnosis of Duchene muscular dystrophy or Becker muscular dystrophy were evaluated by MLPA and multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Sanger sequencing was used to analyze the entire gene in one patient. Mothers were tested for carrier status whenever possible. Molecular analysis of DMD gene by combining MLPA and multiplex PCR yielded a mutation detection rate of 62% (33/53)...

The appearance of untreated severe hydrocephalus with long-term survival is infrequent; here we report a case with these characteristics, mild neurological alterations and kidney and skeletal anomalies. A female patient showed severe hydrocephalus (initially mistaken with hydranencephaly) at 4 years old and left kidney ectopia (initially mistaken with renal agenesis); however, she was derived to the neurology service until she was 12 years old, when she began to present migraine and seizures. At 13 years old the patient was diagnosed with arrested hydrocephalus secondary to aqueduct stenosis, and the seizures worsen thereafter from atonic seizures to complex partial seizures (at 14 years old), presenting generalized seizures at 15 years old...

Wolcott-Rallison Syndrome (WRS), also known as Multiple Epiphyseal Dysplasia with Early-onset Diabetes Mellitus is a rare autosomal recessive multisystemic disorder. Its characteristic clinical features are permanent neonatal or early infancy insulin-dependent diabetes and later onset skeletal dysplasia. Other frequent clinical manifestations are hepatic and renal dysfunction, mental retardation, cardiac abnormalities, exocrine pancreatic dysfunction, primary hypothyroidism and neutropenia. This report presents an 8-year-old WRS case who is found to have W522X mutation in EIF2AK3 gene which was only found in two other unrelated Turkish families...
