ABSTRACT

Chronic myeloid leukemia with a significant increase of monocytes is rare and difficult to identify from chronic myelo-monocytic leukemia in clinic. A 31-year-old male patient with systemic pain was initially diagnosed as chronic myelo-monocytic leukemia, who was finally diagnosed as chronic myeloid leukemia by fusion gene and chromosome examination. In addition to the typical Ph chromosome, a rare chromosome translocation t(2; 7)(p13; p22) was observed. The detection of monocyte subsets by multi-parameter flow cytometry is a diagnostic marker to distinguish the above 2 diseases. The relationship between fusion genes and mononucleosis is not clear. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors or allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation can be used in the treatment for this disease.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To delineate the nature and origin of a chromosomal aberration detected in a boy with mental retardation.@*METHODS@#The proband and his parents were subjected to routine G-banded chromosomal karyotyping and single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP-array) analysis.@*RESULTS@#The karyotype of the proband was determined as 46, XX, add(8)(p23). No karyotypic abnormality was detected in either of his parents. SNP-array has identified a 34.9 Mb duplication at 8p23.1q11.1 and a 6.78 Mb microdeletion at 8p23.1pter in the proband. No copy number variation was detected in either parent.@*CONCLUSION@#The child was diagnosed with 8p inverted duplication deletion syndrome, which might be induced by non-allelic homologous recombination between olfactory genes in the 8p23.1 region.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the cause of abortion and strategy of prenatal diagnosis for pregnant women with high risk for chromosomal abnormalities by using copy number variation sequencing (CNV-seq) and short tandem repeats (STR) analysis.@*METHODS@#A total of 36 samples were collected, including amniotic fluid, abortion tissue, whole blood, chorionic villi and umbilical cord blood. CNV-seq and STR analysis were carried out to detect microdeletions, microduplications, chromosomal aneuploidies, mosaicisms and triploidies.@*RESULTS@#Among all samples, 1 was detected with 4p15.1p16.3 and 14q11.1q22.1 duplication, 1 was detected with 19p13.3 deletion, 8 were detected with chromosomal aneuploidies, 4 were detected with mosaicisms, two were detected with triploidies. No definite pathogenic CNVs were detected in 20 samples, which yielded a positive detection rate of 44.44%.@*CONCLUSION@#As a high-throughput detection method, CNV-seq has the advantages of rapidity, simplicity and high accuracy. It may suit prenatal diagnosis and analysis of abortion factors in combination with STR analysis.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To assess the value of chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) to verify a fetus with partial 18p deletion signaled by non-invasive prenatal testing.@*METHODS@#G-banding chromosomal karyotyping analysis was carried out on amniotic fluid sample of the fetus and peripheral blood samples from the parents. Amniotic DNA was also subjected to CMA analysis. The fetus was also subjected to systematic ultrasound scan.@*RESULTS@#The fetus was found to have a karyotype of 46,XX,18p+. CMA has revealed a 5 Mb deletion at 18p11.32-p11.31, a 2.9 Mb duplication at 18p11.31-p11.23, and a 2.5 Mb duplication at 18p11.23-p11.22. No chromosomal aberration or microdeletion/microduplication was detected in either parent.@*CONCLUSION@#Non-invasive prenatal testing and CMA are both sensitive for the detection of chromosomal microdeletions and microduplications. CMA can help with clarification of genotype-phenotype correlation and facilitate prenatal diagnosis and genetic counseling for the family.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the value of chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) for the diagnosis of fetuses with high risk signaled by non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT).@*METHODS@#From June 2017 to August 2019, 628 pregnant women with high risk signaled by NIPT underwent invasive prenatal diagnosis. Amniotic fluid or cord blood samples were subjected to chromosomal karyotyping analysis or CMA. Pregnancy outcome and postnatal conditions of the fetuses were followed up.@*RESULTS@#The positive predictive value for trisomy 21, trisomy 18, trisomy 13, sex chromosome aneuploidy, other rare trisomies and copy number variants (CNVs) among the 628 women were 86.4% (127/147), 41.7% (30/72), 12.9% (4/31), 43.7% (101/231), 16.5% (14/85) and 52.2% (35/67), respectively. In 218 samples with normal karyotype, 5.5% (12/218) of additional pathogenic CNVs and 2.3% (5/218) of loss of heterozygosity were detected by CMA.@*CONCLUSION@#CMA combined with karyotyping analysis can be used as first-tier test for prenatal diagnosis for women with high-risk signaled by NIPT.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To carry out prenatal diagnosis for a fetus with partial 18p deletion detected by non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT).@*METHODS@#Peripheral blood and amniotic fluid samples of the pregnant woman and her husband were subjected to G-banded chromosomal karyotyping and more accurate chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA). The deletion sites were verified by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) using centromeric probe Cep11 Aqua and telomeric probes Tel11q SO and Tel18 SG.@*RESULTS@#The karyotype of the fetus was determined as 46,XN,del(18)(p11.3). CMA has detected a 6.66 Mb deletion at 18p11.32-p11.31 (136 226-6 796 178). FISH confirmed the presence of a partial deletion at 18p. The mother was found to harbor the same deletion by chromosomal karyotyping as well as CMA analysis. No abnormality was found with the husband.@*CONCLUSION@#Although the fetus and its mother have both carried the same 18p deletion, no clinical manifestation was detected in the mother, which may be attributed to a low penetrance of the disorder. The fetus had died at 33 weeks of gestation with unknown cause.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the genetic basis for a child featuring short stature, saddle nose, cryptorchidism and mental retardation.@*METHODS@#The child and his parents were subjected to G-banded karyotyping and chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA).@*RESULTS@#The child was found to have a 46,Y,der(X)t(X;Y)(p22;q11)mat karyotype. CMA has revealed a 8.3 Mb deletion at Xp22.33p22.31 and a 43.3 Mb duplication at Yq11.221qter. His mother had a karyotype of 46,X,der(X)t(X;Y)(p22;q11). His father had a normal karyotype.@*CONCLUSION@#The child has carried an unbalanced translocation der(X)t(X;Y) (p22;q11) derived from his mother. His clinical phenotype has correlated with the size and position of X chromosome deletion. Compared with the females, abnormal phenotypes such as mental retardation and growth retardation of male carriers are more severe.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To carry out cyto- and molecular genetic testing for a child featuring facial dysmorphism and attention deficit and hyperactive disorder.@*METHODS@#The child was subjected to routine peripheral blood lymphocyte chromosomal karyotyping, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP-array) analyses.@*RESULTS@#The child's facial dysmorphism included low-set ears, curly ear auricle, protuberance of eyebrow arch, nostril notch, short and flat philtrum and thin upper lip. SNP-array revealed that he has carried a 4.883 Mb deletion at 2q37. His chromosomal karyotype was ultimately determined as 45, XY, der(2;21) (2pter→ 2q37.3::21p13→ 21p10::20p10→ 20pter), der(20) (21qter→ 21q10::20q10→ 20qter).@*CONCLUSION@#A rare case of 2q37 deletion syndrome involving three chromosomes was discovered. Combined use of various cyto- and molecular genetic techniques is crucial for the diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities with complex structures.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To describe the clinical and genetic characteristics of a child with 14q12q13.1 deletion involving the FOXG1 gene.@*METHODS@#Clinical manifestation of the child was analyzed. Peripheral blood sample of the patient was subjected to chromosomal karyotyping and single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP-array) analysis.@*RESULTS@#The male infant has developed feeding difficulty, poor sucking, lower limb tremor, and frontal bruising 8 days after birth. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed significant enlargement of bilateral ventricles and corpus callosum dysplasia. Chromosomal analysis revealed a karyotype of 46,XY,del(14)(q12q13.1), and SNP-array confirmed that there was a 9.6 Mb deletion in 14q11.2q13.1, which encompassed the FOXG1 gene.@*CONCLUSION@#For patients with brain development abnormalities, dyskinesia, cognitive impairment, speech disorder and other manifestations, copy number variation of the FOXG1 gene should be excluded. SNP-array should be carried out as early as possible to attain the diagnosis.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To delineate the origin and structure of 3 cases of small supernumerary marker chromosomes (sSMCs) through cytogenetic and molecular genetic analysis.@*METHODS@#Conventional G, C and N banding were carried out to analyze the chromosomal karyotypes. Chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) were used to delineate the origin and structure of the sSMCs.@*RESULTS@#In case 1, chromosomal karyotype of peripheral blood sample was 47,XY,+mar. This de novo sSMC was a dual-satellited dicentric inverted duplicated marker chromosome, for which CMA yielded a normal result. It was predicted to not increase the risk of offspring. In case 2, the fetal chromosomal karyotype was 47,XY,+mar[17]/46,XY[33]. Chromosomal banding suggested that this de novo segment contained euchromatin, and the result of CMA was arr[hg19] 5p12q11.1(45 694 574-49 475 697) × 3. FISH showed the sSMC to be a fragment derived from 5p12 containing the HCN1 gene. Case 3 was found to have a fetal karyotype of 45,XY,-13[25]/46,XY,r(13)[18]/46,XY,-13,+mar[7]. Both parents had refused further examination.@*CONCLUSION@#Conventional chromosomal banding combined with molecular methods can delineate the origin and structure of the sSMCs, which can help with prediction of their pathogenicity and facilitate genetic counseling.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the genetic basis for a patient featuring developmental delay.@*METHODS@#The patient and her parents were subjected to G- and C-banded chromosomal karyotyping analysis. The proband was also analyzed by single nucleotide polymorphism microarray (SNP-array). The result was verified by using fluorescence quantitative PCR (qPCR).@*RESULTS@#The proband's karyotype was ascertained as 46,XX, r(15)(p11.2q26.3)[92]/45,XX,-15[9]/46,XX, dic r(15)(p11.2q26.3;p11.2q26.3)[4]. SNP-array revealed that she has carried a de novo deletion at 15q26.3 (98 957 555-102 429 040) spanning approximately 3.4 Mb, which encompassed the IGF1R gene. qPCR has confirmed haploinsufficiency of exons 3, 10 and 20 of the IGF1R gene. Both of her parents had a normal karyotype.@*CONCLUSION@#The abnormal phenotype of the proband may be attributed to the microdeletion at 15q26.3, in particular haploinsuffiency of the IGF1R gene and instability of the ring chromosome. Cytogenetic method combined with SNP-array and qPCR can efficiently delineate chromosomal aberrations and provide accurate information for clinical diagnosis and genetic counseling.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the genetic etiology for a newborn with corneal opacity.@*METHODS@#The neonate and her parents were subjected to routine G-banding chromosomal karyotyping analysis. Copy number variation (CNV) was analyzed with low-coverage whole-genome sequencing (WGS) and single nucleotide polymorphism microarray (SNP array).@*RESULTS@#No karyotypic abnormality was found in the newborn and her parents. Low-coverage WGS has identified a de novo 5.5 Mb microdeletion at chromosome 8q21.11-q21.13 in the neonate, which encompassed the ZFHX4 and PEX2 genes. The result was confirmed by SNP array-based CNV analysis.@*CONCLUSION@#The newborn was diagnosed with chromosome 8q21.11 deletion syndrome. ZFHX4 may be one of the key genes underlying this syndrome.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To compare the results obtained by the classic and molecular methodology in the analysis of products of conception, the advantages and disadvantages of each method. Methods: Retrospective non-randomized analysis of results obtained from product of conception samples submitted to genetic evaluation, from 2012 to 2017. The evaluations were performed using cytogenetics and/or chromosomal microarray analysis or arrays. Results: Forty samples were analyzed using classic cytogenetics, of which 10% showed no cell growth, 50% had normal results and 40% had abnormalities. Of the 41 cases sent for array analysis it was not possible to obtain results in 7.3%, 39.5% were normal and 60.5% had abnormalities. There was no statistical difference among the results (p=0.89). Most abnormal results were seen till 9 weeks' gestation. The later abnormal miscarriage was seen at 28 weeks' gestation, with karyotype 46,XX,del(15)(q26.2-qter). The results are corroborated by the international literature. Conclusion: Classic cytogenetics and array techniques showed comparable results on the type of alteration observed. Array analysis is preferable to cell culture in delayed abortions, while cytogenetics is more able to show polyploidies. Both have the same growth failure rates when product of conception tissue is not properly collected.


RESUMO Objetivo: Comparar os resultados obtidos pela metodologia clássica e molecular na análise de produtos de concepção, além das vantagens e desvantagens de cada método. Métodos: Análise retrospectiva não randomizada dos resultados obtidos a partir de amostras de produto de concepção submetidas à avaliação genética, de 2012 a 2017. As análises foram realizadas por citogenética clássica e/ou análise cromossômica de microarray ou arrays. Resultados: Quarenta amostras foram analisadas por citogenética, das quais 10% não apresentaram crescimento celular, 50% apresentaram resultados normais, e 40% apresentaram anormalidades. Dos 41 casos encaminhados para análise por array, não foi possível obter resultados em 7,3%, 39,5% eram normais, e 60,5% apresentavam alterações. Não houve diferença estatística entre os resultados (p=0,89). A maioria dos resultados anormais foi observada até a nona semana de gestação. Uma perda fetal mais tardia foi observada na 28ª semana de gestação, com cariótipo 46,XX,del(15)(q26.2-qter). Os números observados corroboraram a literatura mundial. Conclusão: As técnicas de citogenética clássica e análise por array mostraram resultados comparáveis no tipo de alteração observada. O array é preferível à cultura de células em abortos tardios, enquanto a citogenética é mais capaz de mostrar poliploidias. Ambos têm as mesmas taxas de falha de crescimento quando o tecido do produto de concepção não é coletado adequadamente.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To assess the value of combined chromosomal karyotyping and chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) for prenatal diagnosis.@*METHODS@#G-banding karyotyping and CMA were simultaneously performed on 546 women who were subjected to amniocentesis during middle pregnancy.@*RESULTS@#In total 82 cases were detected with chromosomal abnormalities. The two methods were consistent in 43 cases, which included 14 trisomy 21, 6 trisomy 18, 1 trisomy 13, 14 sex chromosomal aneuploidies, 4 chromosomal deletions, 3 chromosomal duplications and 1 sex chromosomal mosaicism. Fifteen fetuses with chromosomal abnormalities detected by CMA were missed by karyotyping analysis, which included 9 microdeletions and 6 microduplications. Sixteen fetuses with chromosomal abnormalities detected by karyotyping analysis were missed by CMA, which included 15 chromosomal translocations and 1 sex chromosomal mosaicism. In 7 cases, the results of karyotyping analysis and CMA were inconsistent. One supernumerary marker chromosome detected by karyotyping analysis was verified by CMA as 9p13.1p21.1 duplication.@*CONCLUSION@#Combined chromosomal karyotyping and CMA can significantly improve the detection rate for chromosomal abnormalities, which has a great value for prenatal diagnosis.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To carry out genetic testing for 3 fetuses with abnormal prenatal screening.@*METHODS@#Fetal ultrasound, karyotype analysis, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array and fluorescence in situ hybridization were performed.@*RESULTS@#Abnormalities of chromosome 22 were found with all 3 fetuses. Fetus 1 harbored a 7.1 Mb deletion in 22q13.2q13.33 region, which involved 54 OMIM genes including SHANK3 and FBLN1. Fetus 2 had a mosaicism karyotype, with 12% of cells harboring a 6.6 Mb deletion in 22q13.31q13.33, covering 48 OMIM genes such as SHANK3 and PPARA, and 5% of cells harboring a 26.1 Mb duplication in 22q11.1q13.2 involving 285 OMIM genes. Fetus 3 carried a tandem duplication of 1.7 Mb in 22q11.1q11.21, which involved 10 OMIM genes including CECR1, CECR2 and ATP6V1E1. No abnormality was found in the three couples by chromosomal karyotyping and SNP array analysis.@*CONCLUSION@#The severity of diseases caused by chromosome 22 abnormalities not only depends on the range of the deletion or duplication, but is also closely related to chromosome structure, gene dose and genetic environment. Combined ultrasonography and various genetic testing techniques in prenatal diagnosis can greatly increase the detection rate of genetic diseases with substantial phenotypic variation.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the pathogenesis and genetic characteristics of a fetus with a der(X)t(X;Y)(p22.3;q11.2) karyotype.@*METHODS@#G-banding karyotyping analysis, BoBs (BACs-on-Beads) assay, and single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP-array) were used to delineate the structural chromosomal aberration of the fetus. The parents of the fetus were also subjected to karyotyping analysis.@*RESULTS@#The fetus and its mother were both found to have a karyotype of 46,X,add(X)(p22), while the father was normal. BoBs assay indicated that there was a lack of Xp22 but a gain of Yq11 signal. SNP-array confirmed that the fetus and its mother both had a 7.13 Mb deletion at Xp22.33p22.31 (608 021-7 736 547) and gain of a 12.52 Mb fragment at Yq11.221q11.23 (16 271 151-28 788 643).@*CONCLUSION@#The fetus was determined to have a karyotype of 46,X,der(X)t(X;Y)(p22.3;q11.2)mat. The combined use of various methods has facilitated delineation of the fetal chromosomal aberration and prediction of the risk prediction for subsequent pregnancy.
