What is the critical gene in Phelan-McDermid syndrome?SHANK3
What is the key gene in Cri-du-chat?TERT telomerase reverse transcriptase
What is the main feature of Miller Dieker Lissencephaly?Smooth brain, absence of folds.
What syndrome is associated with terminal deletion of 17p?Miller Dieker Lissencephaly
What chromosomal region is associated with Smith-Magenis and Potocki-Lupski syndrome?17p region adjacent to the centromere
What is the distinctive feature of Cri-du-chat?High pitched cat like cry

What syndromes are commonly associated with epilepsy?Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, Angelman syndrome, Miller-Dieker, Down syndrome (8%), Fragile X syndrome
State 4 key features of Phelan-McDermid syndromeHypotonia, absence of /or very delayed speech, global developmental delay, normal / accelerated growth
State 4 key feaures of Wolf-Hirschhorn syndromeDysmorphic craniofacial features: broad forehead, hypertelorism, flat nasal bridge, micrognathia, microcephaly; seizures, closure defects: cleft palate, coloboma of eye, cardiac septal defects; pre and post natal growth deficiency
State 4 key features of Cri-du-chat syndromecat like high pitched cry, hypotonia, psychomotor and mental retardation, carniofacial dysmorphism: microcephaly, round face, micrognathia, hypertelorism, low set ears, epicanthal folds
State 4 key features of Miller Dieker syndromelissencephaly - smooth brain, cardiac & kidney malformations, seizures & abnormal EEG, hypoplastic external male genitalia, cognitive impairment, growth retardation, carniofacial dysmorhpism: microcephaly, narrow forehead, small nose & chin, downslanting palpebral fissures, wrinkled skin over glabella
Which syndrome can cause hearing loss and peripheral neuropathy?Smith-Magenis / Potocki-Lupski
What is the most common mechanism of chromosomal del / dup in the syndrome regions?Arise due to low copy repeats, homologous sequences, mispairing during crossing over at meiosis
What alternate mechnisms of del/dup should be considered?Balanced reciprocal translocations in the parents, inversion events in the parents with crossing over in the inverted segment during meiosis
State 4 key features of Angelman syndromeHappy/excitable demeanor, seizures, movement/balance issues, absent or very delayed speech, intellectual disability, developmental delay, sleep difficulties and ADHD.
