Abstract

The DEFECT 11 syndrome is a contiguous gene syndrome associated with deletions in the proximal part of chromosome 11p. In this study we describe in an Italian family the co-existence of multiple exostoses (EXT) and enlarged parietal foramina (FPP), the two major symptoms of this syndrome, with abnormalities of the central nervous system. The latter may be a yet undescribed feature of DEFECT 11 syndrome. FISH and molecular analysis allowed us to identify a small deletion on 11p11-p12, further refining the localisation of the FPP gene involved in the DEFECT 11 syndrome.
