The Morris Kahn Laboratory of Human Genetics, National Institute for Biotechnology in the Negev and Faculty of Health Sciences, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel.

Four affected individuals of consanguineous kindred presented at infancy with an apparently autosomal recessive syndrome of polyuria and hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis, following maternal polyhydramnios and premature delivery, culminating in severe failure to thrive. Hypercalciuria, nephrocalcinosis, and hyperaldosteronism were further apparent as well as an unusual finding of intermittent hypernatremia. Additionally, all patients demonstrated variable micrognathia with upper respiratory airway abnormalities. Read More

Serial Third-Trimester Ultrasonography Compared With Routine Care in Uncomplicated Pregnancies: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Obstet Gynecol 2018 Dec;132(6):1358-1367

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences, McGovern Medical School, and the Center for Clinical Research and Evidence-Based Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Houston, Texas.

Objective: Among uncomplicated pregnancies, serial third-trimester ultrasound examinations identified significantly more cases with a composite of fetal growth or amniotic fluid abnormalities (27%) than did routine fundal height measurements (8%).

Methods: Women without complications between 24 0/7 and 30 6/7 weeks of gestation were randomized (NCT0270299) to either routine care (control arm) or ultrasound examination every 4 weeks (intervention arm). The primary outcome was a composite of abnormalities of fluid volume and growth: oligohydramnios or polyhydramnios; fetal growth restriction; or large for gestational age. Read More

Novel Homozygous Deletion in STRADA Gene Associated With Polyhydramnios, Megalencephaly, and Epilepsy in 2 Siblings: Implications for Diagnosis and Treatment.

J Child Neurol 2018 Dec 12;33(14):925-929. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

2 Department of Neurology, Division of Child Neurology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Mutations in the STE20-related kinase adaptor α ( STRADA) gene have been reported to cause an autosomal recessive neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by infantile-onset epilepsy, developmental delay, and craniofacial dysmorphisms. To date, there have been 17 reported individuals diagnosed with STRADA mutations, 16 of which are from a single Old Order Mennonite cohort and share a deletion of exons 9-13. The remaining individual is of consanguineous Indian descent and has a homozygous single-base pair duplication. Read More

Case of Neonatal Fatality from Neuromuscular Variant of Glycogen Storage Disease Type IV.

JIMD Rep 2019 12;45:51-55. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

Department of Neonatology, The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center, Oklahoma City, OK, USA.

Glycogen storage disease type IV (GSD-IV), or Andersen disease, is a rare autosomal recessive disorder that results from the deficiency of glycogen branching enzyme (GBE). This in turn results in accumulation of abnormal glycogen molecules that have longer outer chains and fewer branch points. GSD-IV manifests in a wide spectrum, with variable phenotypes depending on the degree and type of tissues in which this abnormal glycogen accumulates. Read More

Changes in Intra-Amniotic, Fetal Intrathoracic, and Intraperitoneal Pressures with Uterine Contraction: A Report of Three Cases.

Case Rep Obstet Gynecol 2018 12;2018:4281528. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Fetal-Maternal Medicine, Nagara Medical Centre, 1300-7, Nagara, Gifu 502-8558, Japan.

Intra-amniotic, fetal intrathoracic, and intraperitoneal pressures during pregnancy have been previously investigated. However, to our knowledge, changes in these pressures during uterine contractions have not been reported. Herein, we present three cases of polyhydramnios, fetal pleural effusion, and fetal ascites, in which intra-amniotic, fetal intrathoracic, intraperitoneal pressures increased with uterine contractions.

Prenatal profile of Pallister-Killian syndrome: Retrospective analysis of 114 pregnancies, literature review and approach to prenatal diagnosis.

Am J Med Genet A 2018 Dec 5;176(12):2575-2586. Epub 2018 Oct 5.

Division of Human Genetics, Department of Pediatrics, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Pallister-Killian syndrome (PKS) is a tissue limited mosaic disorder, characterized by variable degrees of neurodevelopmental delay and intellectual disability, typical craniofacial findings, skin pigmentation anomalies and multiple congenital malformations. The wide phenotypic spectrum of PKS in conjunction with the mosaic distribution of the i(12p) makes PKS an underdiagnosed disorder. Recognition of prenatal findings that should raise a suspicion of PKS is complicated by the fragmentation of data currently available in the literature and challenges in diagnosing a mosaic diagnosis on prenatal testing.

Ultrasound evaluation of fetal critical aortic stenosis using the left atrium area/cardiac area ratio and the Doppler patterns in the pulmonary veins.

J Med Ultrason (2001) 2019 Apr 4;46(2):267-272. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Juntendo University Shizuoka Hospital, 1129 Nagaoka, Izunokuni-sh, Shizuoka, 479-2211, Japan.

In fetal critical aortic stenosis (AS), a double reverse pattern in the pulmonary veins (PVs) is associated with a poor prognosis. We evaluated the hemodynamic changes using PV Doppler and the left atrium area/cardiac area (LA/CA) ratio in a fetus at 28 weeks of gestation with critical AS complicated with hydrops fetalis, polyhydramnios, and cardiac abnormality. A markedly enlarged LA and severe mitral regurgitation with critical AS were detected, with LA/CA ratio = 0. Read More

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH, USA.

We present a case of a newborn female with multiple anomalies demonstrating that the causes of imprinting disorders rely not only on the parent-of-origin of the chromosomal aberrations, but also the scope of genes contained in the imprinted region. The newborn female presented with prenatal polyhydramnios, neonatal respiratory distress, distal contractures, abdominal hernia, bell-shaped thorax, and abnormal ribs. The neonate required mechanical ventilation due to apnea, underwent surgery for laryngomalacia, and showed development delay by age 11 months. Read More
