1/52. Characterization of a small supernumerary ring marker derived from chromosome 2 by forward and reverse chromosome painting.

    A small ring-shaped supernumerary marker chromosome (SMC) was detected in 50% of metaphase cells in an 18-month-old boy with mental retardation and multiple congenital anomalies. Conventional cytogenetic methods had failed to identify the origin of the marker. When the patient was age 11.5 years, we defined the origin of the SMC by fluorescence in situ hybridization using a battery of centromere-specific dna probes. The marker was positive with the probe for locus D2Z. More detailed characterization was achieved by using chromosome 2 arm-specific and marker-specific DNA libraries, which were constructed by microdissection of the two arms chromosome 2 and SMC with subsequent amplification of the chromosomal material by a degenerate oligonucleotide-primed polymerase chain reaction (DOP-PCR). The marker was identified as r(2)(p11.2-->q14.1). The propositus had dolichocephaly, coarse hair, low-set ears, exophthalmos, epicanthal folds, strabismus, depressed nasal bridge, high-arched palate, excess of skin on the neck, tapered fingers with mild clinodactyly, talipes varus on the right, inguinal hernia, hypogenitalism, muscular hypotonia, and mental retardation. This is the first case of SMC derived from chromosome 2 that was characterized by forward and reverse chromosome painting.

2/52. Psychogenic equinovarus: the importance of recognition and non-operative treatment.

    Although the potential for musculoskeletal symptoms in hysteric conversion disorder was recognized by Sigmund Freud, reports of it in the orthopaedic literature have been limited to upper extremity manifestations. This study reports 3 cases which illustrate hysteric conversion presenting as primary foot and ankle complaints. Given its relative rarity, it is a diagnosis that is easy to miss. Clinical clues to its diagnosis and accepted methods of treatment are discussed. It is important to realize that this condition arises from an unconscious conflict and does not represent a voluntary falsification of symptoms. As such, confrontational treatment is not generally successful.

3/52. Congenital bowing of the long bones associated with camptodactyly, talipes equinovarus and agenesis of the corpus callosum.

    We report a baby with congenital bowing of the long bones, camptodactyly, talipes equinovarus and radiological features resembling both Stuve-Wiedemann syndrome and Schwartz-Jampel syndrome type 2. The baby had, in addition, agenesis of the corpus callosum. This feature has not been reported in either of these syndromes. It is possible that this baby has a previously undescribed syndrome.

4/52. Case report: human neonatus with spina bifida, clubfoot, situs inversus totalis and cerebral deformities: sequence or accident?

    An unreported coincidence of malformations has been studied by anatomical dissection in a mature male fetus. Auxiliary, this fetus was examined by computed tomography and the skeletal malformations were three-dimensionally reconstructed. The organs of the thorax as well as of the abdomen showed a visceral inversion. In the lumbar region, a hyperkyphosis was detected in addition to a split-notochord. A hydrocephalus internus with enlarged lateral ventricles and an agenesis of the corpus callosum were apparent. The lower extremities were dystrophic with both showing a talipes equinovarus-deformation. Following the case report, we discuss if this is coincidental or manifestations in consequence of one defect.

5/52. Functional upper airway obstruction in a child with Freeman-Sheldon syndrome.

    Freeman-Sheldon syndrome is defined as a combination of microstomia, deep set eyes, small palpebral fissures, arthrogryposis with ulnar deviation of the hand, talipes equinovarus and generalized muscular hypertension. Respiratory and swallowing problems are frequently encountered in these patients due to small orifices of mouth and nose. Obstruction of the upper airway tract resulting in tracheostomy has only been described twice. The described child manifested the typical dysmorphic features of Freeman-Sheldon syndrome and suffered from serious respiratory distress and swallowing difficulties from birth. The boy died at the age of 7 months after accidental decannulation of the tracheostoma during sleep. He did not show anatomical or histopathological abnormalities in the pharyngeal, laryngeal or tracheal regions. We assume that the only explanation of the repeated obstructive episodes is a functional muscular obstruction.

6/52. Identification of decomposed human remains from radiographic comparisons of an unusual foot deformity.

    A case of positive identification from decomposed human remains using an unusual foot deformity is presented. Scrutiny of the decedent revealed foot deformities, which upon examination, prompted further inquiry. Radiographic comparisons and defleshing each foot established bilateral talipes equinovarus (TEV, clubfoot). Positive identification was based upon unique skeletal features present in the radiographs.

7/52. Three-dimensional ultrasound in prenatal counselling of congenital talipes equinovarus.

    The fetus of a 35-year-old woman, gravida 5, para 3, was diagnosed with isolated left-sided congenital talipes equinovarus on routine ultrasound at 22 weeks of gestation. parents were counselled about the abnormality but still ultrasound pictures made it difficult for them to understand the nature of the defect. A three-dimensional ultrasound scan helped the couple to understand the abnormality, make an informed choice-with self-confidence-regarding pregnancy continuation, and plan for postnatal management.

8/52. tibial nerve block with anesthetics resulting in achilles tendon avulsion.

    Diagnostic tibial nerve block with anesthetics is a common and safe procedure for the management of the spastic equinovarus foot. Side effects have been rarely reported. We present the case of a hemiplegic patient with a spastic equinovarus foot who presented with an avulsion fracture of the calcaneum at the insertion of the achilles tendon consecutive to a diagnostic tibial nerve block with anesthetic agents. Although rare, such a complication should be considered when the achilles tendon is shortened and when the patient is suspected of bone osteoporosis or dystrophy.

9/52. Congenital diastasis of the inferior tibiofibular joint: report of three additional cases treated by the Ilizarov method and literature review.

    Congenital diastasis of the inferior tibiofibular joint presents clinical problems of talipes equinovarus, ankle diastasis, and leg-length inequality. In the past, foot disarticulation and prosthetic fitting has often been chosen as a solution because of the difficulty involved in functional reconstruction. The authors report three additional cases of congenital diastasis of the inferior tibiofibular joint that were satisfactorily treated by lengthening of the tibia and fibula and foot repositioning by the ilizarov technique. After treatment, all patients had a plantigrade, functional foot with normal sensation at skeletal maturity and were satisfied with the cosmetic and functional outcomes. The ilizarov technique is effective in accomplishing the goals of leg-length equalization and foot repositioning.

10/52. Congenital club foot with survival of motor neuron 1, telomeric (SMN1) gene deletion.

    A boy with nonreducible bilateral congenital talipes equinovarus had delayed milestones with early-onset generalized hypotonia and muscular weakness. The condition remained stable until he was 8 years old. A slow worsening of motor abilities, with myopathic signs, was observed thereafter. A homozygous deletion of exons 7 and 8 of the survival of motor neuron 1, telomeric (SMN1) gene was found, without neuronal apoptosis inhibitory protein (NAIP) gene deletion, leading to the diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy. Independent ambulation was lost when he was 13 years old. The occurrence of congenital clubfoot with early onset of neurologic signs, but with a very slowly progressive course, has not been reported in spinal muscular atrophy until now.
