Tsai LP, Lee KF, Fang JS, Liu IY - Mol Cytogenet (2011)

Bottom Line: In addition, the distal arm of 7q, at least 8 kb from the telomere, was missing.There was no other chromosomal rearrangement detected by multicolour banding.This is the 19th reported case of complete ring chromosome 7 mosaicism and the first survived case with mosaic supernumerary ring 7 without a normal karyotype detected in the peripheral lymphocytes.

ABSTRACT

Aim: Clinical and molecular cytogenetic investigations of a newborn girl exhibiting facial dysmorphism with developmental delay.

Methods: Phenotypic evaluation was first applied to examine the proband's developmental status. Computed tomography and colour transcranial Doppler were used then to investigate her brain structure and function. Subsequently, chromosomal abnormalities were examined by karyotyping and fluorescent in situ hybridization was performed to investigate size of fragments lost at the two distal ends of the ring chromosome 7. In addition, multicolour banding was applied to rule out structural rearrangement occurs in between the ring chromosome 7.

Results: The proband was born with mosaic supernumerary ring chromosome 7, without a normal karyotype detected in the peripheral blood lymphocytes. The distal arm of chromosome 7p (at least 255 kb from the telomere) was part of an extra ring chromosome 7. In addition, the distal arm of 7q, at least 8 kb from the telomere, was missing. There was no other chromosomal rearrangement detected by multicolour banding.

Interpretation: This is the 19th reported case of complete ring chromosome 7 mosaicism and the first survived case with mosaic supernumerary ring 7 without a normal karyotype detected in the peripheral lymphocytes.

Multicolor banding of normal and ring chromosome 7: Multicolor banding probes that specifically detect various regions along chromosome 7 were hybridized to metaphases; no rearrangement was observed in normal ring 7 chromosomes.

Figure 4: Multicolor banding of normal and ring chromosome 7: Multicolor banding probes that specifically detect various regions along chromosome 7 were hybridized to metaphases; no rearrangement was observed in normal ring 7 chromosomes.

Mentions: Multicolour banding was performed to determine whether a micro-rearrangement occurred in the ring chromosome 7. Multicolor chromosome 7 banding probes that specifically detect various regions along chromosome 7 were hybridized to metaphases and viewed under the fluorescent microscope. No chromosome rearrangement was detected (Figure 4).
