We report a case of familial contracted endocardial fibroelastosis (EFE) in a young boy presenting at 14 months of age with severe heart failure. A previous echocardiogram showed normal left ventricular (LV) size and systolic function. The family history was suggestive of X-linked cardiomyopathy. These findings are assessed in light ...

We describe two fetal cases of microphthalmia/anophthalmia, pulmonary agenesis, and diaphragmatic defect. This rare association is known as Matthew-Wood syndrome (MWS; MIM 601186) or by the acronym "PMD" (Pulmonary agenesis, Microphthalmia, Diaphragmatic defect). Fewer than ten pre- and perinatal diagnoses of Matthew-Wood syndrome have been described to date. The cause ...

BACKGROUND: At least five distinct loci have been implicated in split hand foot malformation (SHFM). Establishing genotype/phenotype correlations at the chromosomal level may elucidate responsible developmental genes and improve patient management. In our analysis of previously published genetically mapped SHFM cases, preaxial hand involvement was a significant discriminating variable, most ...

In traumatic insemination, males pierce females with hypodermic genitalia and ejaculate into the body cavity rather than into the genital tract. This has resulted in the evolution of female counter-adaptations in the form of paragenitalia to reduce the direct physical costs of mating. While rare in the animal kingdom, traumatic ...

Phosphodiesterase 11 (PDE11) is the latest isoform of the phosphodiesterase family to be identified. Interest in PDE11 has increased recently because tadalafil, an oral phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor, cross reacts with PDE11. The function of PDE11 remains largely unknown, but growing evidence points to a possible role in male reproduction. The ...

Reconsideration of all fossils formerly referred to the Trapeziidae Miers, 1886, suggests that both the Trapeziidae and the morphologically similar Domeciidae Ortmann, 1893, are represented in the fossil record. Two fossil species formerly considered to be trapeziids are referred to the domeciid genus Jonesius Sankarankutty, 1962. New combinations include J. ...
