We describe here four patients who appear to have similar clinical and immunological features which constitute a novel syndrome. The patients present with short stature owing to spondylometaphyseal dysplasia and with severe infections as the result of a combined humoral and cellular immune...
Autosomal-dominant hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a genetically heterogeneous disease caused by mutations in at least two different loci. We screened for mutations in four Italian families where segregation studies showed clear evidence of linkage to the endoglin (ENG) locus. In...
Congenital hypothyroidism is the most common congenital endocrine disorder (one newborn in 3000) and represents the most common cause of preventable mental retardation. In 10 20% of cases, it is due to autosomal recessive functional disorders leading to goiter formation (thyroid...
Ehlers Danlos syndrome type IV (EDS-IV) is an autosomal-dominant disorder caused by a defect of type III collagen which leads to ruptures of arteries and hollow organs. Neurological presentation with muscle involvement and flexion contractures of the finger joints is uncommon. We clinically...
Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency (AAT deficiency) is one of the most common serious hereditary disorders in the world because it affects all major racial subgroups worldwide and there are at least 120.5 million carriers and deficient subjects worldwide. This genetic disease is related to a high...
Association of sensorineural deafness and progressive retinitis pigmentosa with and without a vestibular abnormality is the hallmark of Usher syndrome and involves at least 12 loci among three different clinical subtypes. Genes identified for the more commonly inherited loci are USH2A (encoding...
Predictive and pre-natal testing for Huntington's Disease (HD) has been available since 1987. Initially this was offered by linkage analysis, which was surpassed by the advent of the direct mutation test for HD in 1993. Direct mutation analysis provided an accurate test that not only enhanced...
