We report on two sibs with ICF syndrome (immunodeficiency, centromeric heterochromatin instability, and facial anomalies) diagnosed in the elder brother based on the typical chromosomal abnormalities present in 56% of metaphases from cultured lymphocytes. In a previous cytogenetic analysis this diagnosis had been missed due to low manifestation of the ICF chromosomal phenotype. Hypomethylation of classical satellites 2 and 3, and of alpha-satellite DNA was shown in the lymphocytes of the younger sister. At 7 years of age the boy presented with hemiplegia due to tumerous invasion of the right brachial plexus. Histopathology revealed classical Hodgkin lymphoma, a neoplasia which might have been facilitated by the underlying genetic defect.
