    Noonan syndrome (NS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by distinctive facial features, short neck, short stature, congenital heart defects, pectus deformities, and variable developmental delays. NS is genetically heterogeneous as pathogenic variants in several genes involved in the Ras/mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway have been associated with a NS phenotype. Overall, 50% of patients harbor pathogenic variants in PTPN11, whereas 3-17% of patients have variants in RAF1. Read More

    Orofacial clefts are the most common congenital craniofacial anomalies and can occur as an isolated defect or be associated with other anomalies such as posterior fossa anomalies as a part of several genetic syndromes. We report two consecutive voluntary pregnancy interruptions in a nonconsanguineous couple following the fetal ultrasound finding of cleft lip and palate and posterior fossa anomalies confirmed by means of post-termination examination on the second fetus. The quantitative fluorescent PCR, the karyotype, and the comparative genomic hybridization-array analysis after amniocentesis were normal. Read More
