A de novo complex chromosomal rearrangement involving chromosomes 2, 8 and 13 in a dysmorphic case with polysyndactyly.
We report herein a case with dysmorphic features, polysyndactyly and psychomotor mental retardation, who had an apparently balanced de novo translocation between chromosomes 8 and 13 as well as a de novo insertion within chromosome 2 itself. This case is worth mentioning in the sense that it bears two de novo rearrangements with five breakpoints. The correlation between the possible disrupted genes within the given breakpoints and the phenotype of the case will be discussed. (+info)
Inverted face processing in body dysmorphic disorder.
Delusional disorder-somatic type (or body dysmorphic disorder) and schizophrenia: a case report.
With regard to delusional disorder-somatic subtype there may be a relationship with body dysmorphic disorder. There are reports that some delusional disorders can evolve to become schizophrenia. Similarly, the treatment of such disorders with antipsychotics has been documented. This report describes a case of delusional disorder - somatic type - preceding a psychotic episode and its successful treatment with an antipsychotic drug, thus contributing to what has been documented on the subject.
