X-linked mental retardation by Roger E Stevenson; Charles E Schwartz; Richard J Schroer

By Roger E Stevenson; Charles E Schwartz; Richard J Schroer

This can be a complete and up to date survey of psychological retardation as a result of genes at the X chromosome. medical and laboratory info on a hundred thirty syndromes are offered in a concise and constant demeanour. every one syndrome is outlined and data is equipped on somatic beneficial properties, progress and improvement, neurological symptoms, cognitive functionality, imaging and different laboratory findings, and while attainable, the character and localization of the accountable gene. Craniofacial and different somatic findings are generally illustrated. A differential matrix accompanies every one syndrome description to aid the reader in settling on different X-linked syndromes with overlapping beneficial properties. As historical past, the X chromosome and the emergence of the idea that of X-linked psychological retardation are mentioned. X-chromosome maps exhibit the positioning and mapping limits of the in charge genes. The authors have vast event within the scientific and laboratory delineation of X-linked psychological retardation. they've got defined new syndromes, locally mapped ailment loci at the X chromosome, and in numerous instances remoted the genes answerable for X-linked syndromes
