5.9 Mb microdeletion in chromosome band 17q22-q23.2 associated with tracheo-esophageal fistula and conductive hearing loss.

Eur J Med Genet 2009 Jan-Feb;52(1):71-4. Epub 2008 Oct 17.

Only eight cases involving deletions of chromosome 17 in the region q22-q24 have been reported previously. We describe an additional case, a 7-year-old boy with profound mental retardation, severe microcephaly, facial dysmorphism, symphalangism, contractures of large joints, hyperopia, strabismus, bilateral conductive hearing loss, genital abnormality, psoriasis vulgaris and tracheo-esophageal fistula. Analysis with whole-genome SNP genotyping assay detected a 5.9 Mb deletion in chromosome band 17q22-q23.2 with breakpoints between 48,200,000-48,300,000 bp and 54,200,000-54,300,000 bp (according to NCBI 36). The aberration was confirmed by real-time quantitative PCR analysis. Haploinsufficiency of NOG gene has been implicated in the development of conductive hearing loss, skeletal anomalies including symphalangism, contractures of joints, and hyperopia in our patient and may also contribute to the development of tracheo-esophageal fistula and/or esophageal atresia.

Microdeletions in chromosome 17q22, where the NOG gene resides, have been reported leading to the NOG-related symphalangism spectrum disorder (NOG-SSD), intellectual disability and other developmental abnormalities. In this study we reported a dominant Chinese Han family segregating with typical NOG-SSD symptoms including proximal symphalangism, conductive hearing loss, amblyopia and strabismus, but not intellectual disability. Sanger sequencing identified no pathogenic mutation in the coding regions of candidate genes NOG, GDF5 and FGF9. Read More

An interstitial deletion of 2q22-q23 was found in a 2.5 year old boy with multiple congenital abnormalities (including Hirschsprung's disease) and severe mental retardation. Comparison with seven additional cases of 2q deletions from the literature does not allow the delineation of a clinically recognizable syndrome. Read More

Cryptic 17q22 deletion in a boy with a t(10;17)(p15.3;q22) translocation, multiple synostosis syndrome 1, and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.

Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine, Tokyo Women's Medical University, Tokyo, Japan.

We report on a boy who had multiple synostosis syndrome 1, an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by progressive symphalangism, multiple joint fusions, conductive deafness, and mild facial dysmorphism. In addition the boy developed delay of puberty, bone age, and closure of the epiphyseal lines of long bones with tall stature. These findings and decreased plasma LH and FSH levels at age 19 years were compatible with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Read More
