Progressive familial heart block type I (PFHB-I) is an autosomal inherited disease. It was previously postulated that the disease is limited to the cardiac conduction tissue. The presentation of a patient with dilated cardiomyopathy focused on the possibility that this might be part of PFHB-I. This observation led to routine ...

Blue naevi are benign melanocytic neoplasms. They are usually solitary blue or blue-black nodules or plaques. Multiple blue naevi have been reported rarely and there is one report of familial solitary blue naevus. However, familial multiple blue naevi have not been reported previously. We report the case of a family ...

We reviewed the 288 cases of centronuclear (myotubular) myopathy reported in the literature to correlate the clinical findings with the different modes of inheritance. Autosomal dominant (AD) inheritance occurred in 65 patients in 14 families. Recessive X-linked transmission (XLR) was present in 84 males belonging to 14 families. In 54 ...

Brain arteriovenous malformations are considered to originate from a congenital maldevelopment of the brain vessels. Although there have been occasional reports suggesting a familial incidence of these lesions, data for only 10 families have been accumulated in the literature. The authors report on six such cases in three families. This ...

There are a very few reports in literature of inherited intracerebral cavernous angiomas. The majority of them are Mexican-American families. In some of the reported families autosomal dominant transmission is suggested. We report a family in which three members of three consecutive generations were proven to have multiple intracerebral cavernous ...

Familial predisposition to chondrocalcinosis (CC) due to calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) crystal deposition is described in five English kindreds. Two families were characterized by premature-onset polyarticular CC with little associated structural arthropathy. In one of these families, recurrent childhood fits were strongly associated with subsequent development of CC. Affected members ...

A 55-year-old man with cerebellar ataxia and steatocystoma multiplex was found to have reduced serum concentrations of total cholesterol, betalipoprotein and apolipoprotein B. Computed tomography revealed atrophy of the cerebellum and brain stem. Of the six family members examined, four had hypobetalipoproteinaemia, and one had mild ataxia. Similar skin lesions ...

The authors report a 15-month-old white male and his 30-year-old mother who both have persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) unassociated with other congenital anomalies. Although there are two previous reports of PHPV in siblings suggesting autosomal recessive inheritance, this is the first report compatible with autosomal dominant inheritance.

To determine the occurrence of hereditary bullous epidermolyses (EB) in Croatia, Yugoslavia, from 1960 to 1987, cases were gathered from the hospital files of dermatologic and pediatric clinics and departments throughout the area. The diagnosis of EB type was made on the basis of clinical features, patients' histories, and light ...

Acromegaly is usually regarded as a disease which arises sporadically except on those rare occasions in which it occurs as one component of an inherited pluriglandular syndrome. Familial acromegaly occurring in isolation has been reported only rarely. We have studied three families in each of which two first-degree relatives have ...

Two siblings in a family--a 5-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl--suffered from progressive headache and gait disturbance in an interval of 1 year, consecutively. Neurologic manifestations were papilledema and truncal ataxia.

Heredofamilial paragangliomas account for less than 10% of those arising in the head and neck. Multiplicity, multicentricity, and bilaterality is roughly three times more common than in the spontaneous variety. Not unlike other hereditary neuroendocrine tumor syndromes, familial paragangliomas appear to follow an autosomal dominant transmission, with variable penetrance and ...

A family is reported in which isolated hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism is inherited as an autosomal dominant condition with variable expression. In previous familial cases, inheritance was autosomal recessive. Comparison is made with the endocrine and genetic findings in Kallmann's syndrome, which should be considered a separate disorder. There is difficulty in ...

We report two patients with segmental neurofibromatosis and review the literature with regard to possible hereditary transmission of this disorder. Patients that meet strict criteria for the diagnosis of segmental neurofibromatosis seem to have a low probability of transmitting the disease. We emphasize the importance of establishing and strictly adhering ...

Three male patients in successive generations of the same family developed acquired left-sided hemifacial spasm. Magnetic resonance imaging of the proband demonstrated a pontine vertebral artery anomaly near the root of the affected facial nerve. This family and a similar family that was recently presented illustrate several interesting features: (1) ...

Sibling incest has seldom been researched and thus remains poorly understood. The authors review a case and discuss it in the context of the recent literature on incest. The case report they present demonstrates the complexity of individual and family dynamics leading to incest and illustrates the need for caution ...

Colorectal cancer in familial adenomatous polyposis is a preventable disease in at-risk relatives of patients with primary cases. Until the recent establishment of a register in Western Australia, there has been no registration of pedigrees or central organization of surveillance in Australia. In the present study, the experience of 20 ...

Paragangliomas are neuroendocrine tumours and those occurring in the head and neck have well recognized familial association. Retroperitoneal paragangliomas are uncommon and we present two cases of familial malignant retroperitoneal paraganglioma. Review of the literature revealed marked differences in the incidence and malignant potential of familial and non-familial paraganglioma. In ...

The prenatal diagnosis of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is now being reported with increasing frequency. We report three cases and review 12 cases of ADPKD diagnosed in the fetus by ultrasonographic findings. Increased echogenicity and renal enlargement are the main ultrasonographic signs of ADPKD. Renal cysts are uncommon. ...

A case of superficial gyrate erythema that was indistinguishable from erythema annulare centrifugum occurred in identical twins. We propose to include a familial cause among the known causes of erythema annulare centrifugum rather than considering this a separate entity, "familial annular erythema."

We use the term "occasionally-occurring familial brain tumours" (OFBT) to designate cases in which more than one member of a family presents a brain tumours outside the range of the clinical syndromes in which CNS cancer heredity is well established. We report our experience of OFBT and review the published ...
