We report a case of severe Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) in a fetus at 16 weeks of gestation. This presentation, incompatible with life, included a giant omphalocele and absence of abdominal wall musculature with extremely dilated bladder, as in the “prune belly” sequence. Adrenal...
We report on a Prader–Willi patient with a de novo supernumerary marker chromosome (SMC) in 16% of the cells. The SMC was a ring chromosome and it included the PWS/AS critical region as was demonstrated by FISH. Segregation analysis indicated that the SMC originated from a paternal chromosome...
We report studies on the second pregnancy of a woman who had previously given birth to a virilized female infant. The cause of the virilization had not been established, but common forms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) were excluded. Longitudinal monitoring of the second pregnancy...
We report on three boys, two brothers and their maternal cousin, presenting with dry hair, pilar keratosis, severe hypodontia, smooth tongue, onychodysplasia, and keratoderma and hyperhidrosis of palms and soles. Histology of the skin showed orthokeratotic, hyperkeratosis, hypergranulosis, and...

Dieker and Opitz in 1969 described the simultaneous occurrence of limb deficiencies (LDs) and renal anomalies (RAs) in three patients. Curran and Curran introduced in 1972 the term “acrorenal syndrome.” Since then, the term “acrorenal syndrome” is used occasionally, but a...
We present clinical and cytogenetic data on a family with a t(4;13)(p16;q11) translocation present in four generations. The balanced translocation resulted in one individual with monosomy 4p and one individual with trisomy 4p, due to 3:1 segregation. The male patient with trisomy 4p was fertile...
We report on three patients with Costello syndrome and isolated growth hormone (GH) deficiency treated with biosynthetic GH. To our knowledge, these are the only patients with Costello syndrome who have been successfully treated for GH deficiency. We review the pathophysiology of Costello...
