  • Constitutional abnormalities: Present at birth
    Acquired abnormalities: Acquired during life; usually used to refer to clonal abnormalities associated with malignancy


  • 1. Developmental Pathology INDIAN DENTAL ACADEMY Leader in continuing dental education
  • 2. Cytogenetics • Examination of chromosomes under the microscope • Necessary to induce cells to undergo mitosis in order to see individual chromosomes • Molecular cytogenetic techniques (e.g., FISH) can be performed on interphase cells (cells that are not actively dividing)
  • 3. Reasons to do a cytogenetic study • Diagnose constitutional disorders – I.e., disorders present at birth -- classic example is trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) – Typically involve more than one cell line • Add further diagnostic or prognostic information to a diagnosis of an acquired disorder – I.e., diseases that are NOT constitutional -- these are most commonly malignancies – Typically involve only the cell line or tissue involved by the malignancy
  • 4. 48-hour culture; overnight exposure to colcemid
  • 5. 72-hour culture; several hours’ colcemid; ethidium bromide added
  • 6.
  • 7.
  • 8. Basic Terminology • Constitutional Chromosomal Abnormalities • Acquired Chromosomal Abnormalities • Numerical abnormalities • Structural abnormalities – Balanced – Unbalanced
  • 9.
  • 10. Karyotype -- Blood
  • 11. Karyotype -- Marrow
  • 12. FISH diagram (scanned)
  • 13. Fluorescence in s itu hybridization (FISH) • Specimen is collected as previously described for each tissue type • Indications for FISH include: – Microdeletions (e.g., Prader-Willi, Angelman and DiGeorge syndromes) – Cryptic translocations (e.g., t(12;21)) – Cancer translocations (e.g., BCR-abl, PML-RARA) and rearrangements (e.g., MLL) – Enumeration of chromosomes or detection of translocations or rearrangements in interphase nuclei
  • 14. Clinical History • Approximately 32 weeks’ gestation • Abnormalities detected on ultrasound: – Abnormal head shape – Frontal bossing – Clenched fists
  • 15.
  • 16.
  • 17.
  • 18.
  • 19. Newest method -- array-based Comparative Genomic Hybridization • DNA is extracted from patient • DNA from patient and sex-matched control are labeled in different colors • Labeled DNA is hybridized to a chip (microarray) on which are oligonucleotides spaced across the genome (density or spacing of oligos depends on platform) • Results in ratio of patient to control at these loci
  • 20. Array CGH • Used to detect abnormalities too small to be seen under the microscope (each G-band can contain hundreds of genes) • Can detect only unbalanced rearrangements (e.g., deletions, duplications) • Balanced rearrangements (e.g., inversions, insertions) will NOT be detected by array-CGH
  • 21.
  • 22.
  • 23. Specimen to draw for a cytogenetic study? • SODIUM heparin tube • Recommend at least 1 ml (3 if poss)
  • 24. Trisomy (one extra chromosome) • Typically arises from a nondisjunction error in either meiosis I, meiosis II or mitosis (if due to amitotic error, the trisomy is mosaic) • Most autosomal trisomies arise from maternal nondisjunction errors – Strong correlation between increasing maternal age and risk for nondisjunction – Advanced Maternal Age (AMA) is the most common reason for referral for a prenatal chromosome study – 95% of trisomy 21 is due to maternal nondisjunction errors
  • 25.
  • 26.
  • 27. Major “viable” trisomies • Chromosome 13 (obsolete name, Patau synd) • Chromosome 18 (obsolete name, Edward synd) • Chromosome 21 (Down synd) • All other chromosomes have been reported in trisomic state; unless mosaic, virtually uniformly fatal in utero or shortly after birth
  • 28. Trisomy 21 (1 in 800 live births; incidence greater if mat. age >35) • • • • • • Hypotonia Short neck with loose skin at nape Flat nasal bridge Brushfield spots around edge of iris Epicanthal folds Short, broad hands with single transverse palmar crease • Congenital heart disease • Mental retardation • Increased for leukemia
  • 29. Thompson & Thompson, Genetics in Medicine, 7th ed, p. 91
  • 30. Trisomy 13 (1 in 15-25000 live births) • Growth retardation • Severe central CNS malformations (e.g., holoprosencephaly) • Microcephaly • Cleft lip, cleft palate • Polydactyly • Congenital heart, renal and genitourinary malfomations
  • 31. Thompson & Thompson, Genetics in Medicine, 7th ed, p. 95
  • 32. Trisomy 18 (1 in 7500 live births) • Severe cardiac malformations • Low-set, malformed ears • Characteristic clenched fist (2nd and 5th digits overlap) • Rocker-bottom feet • Mental retardation • Increased maternal age is a risk factor
  • 33. Thompson & Thompson, Genetics in Medicine, 7th ed, p. 94
  • 34. Sex chromosome numerical abnormalities • Male – Klinefelter (47,XXY): 1/1000 males – 47,XYY: 1/1000 males – 46,XX males: 1/20,000 males • Female – – – – Turner (45,X): 1/5000 females Trisomy X (47,XXX): 1/1000 females 46,XY females: 1/20,000 females Androgen insensitivity (testicular feminization): 1/20,000 females
  • 35. Klinefelter syndrome • Tall, thin body habitus; long legs • Signs of hypogonadism at puberty – Small testes, underdeveloped secondary sex characteristics • May have gynecomastia • Almost always infertile • May be mosaic for a normal (or other abnormal) cell line
  • 36. Thompson & Thompson, Genetics in Medicine, 7th ed, p. 106
  • 37. Turner syndrome • Approx. 99% of 45,X conceptions die in utero; livebirth approx 1/4000 females • Approx. 50% cases 45,X; remainder are mosaic for another cell line, either 46,XX or with a structurally abnormal X (e.g., isochromosome Xq)
  • 38. Turner syndrome • • • • Short stature Broad chest with widely spaced nipples Gonadal dysgenesis (e.g., streak gonads) Webbed neck (from lymphedema during fetal life) • Lymphedema of dorsum of feet • Low posterior hairline • Renal and cardiovascular abnls, incl. coarctation of aorta
  • 39. Thompson & Thompson, Genetics in Medicine, 7th ed, p. 108
  • 40. Microdeletion/microduplication syndromes • Very small (sometimes visible by Gbanding, sometimes not) deletions • Result from unequal crossing over between homologous regions on chromosomes during meiosis • Typically confirmed by FISH
  • 41. Thompson & Thompson, Genetics in Medicine, 7th ed, p. 97
  • 42.
  • 43. Microdeletion syndromes Thompson & Thompson, Genetics in Medicine, 7th ed, p. 96
  • 44. DiGeorge/velocardiofacial syndromes • Characteristic craniofacial features • Varying degrees of mental retardation may be a feature • Conotruncal heart defects (e.g., tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary atresia, absent pulmonary valve) • Over 30 different genes in this region, so phenotype dependent on size of deletion
  • 45. Prader-Willi/Angelman syndromes • Both due to a deletion within the proximal long arm of a chromosome 15 • Manifestations depend on which chromosome 15 is deleted: the 15 that came from the patient’s mother or the 15 that came from the patient’s father: – IMPRINTING – Need specialized molecular studies to determine which homolog is deleted

  • 57. Cystic Fibrosis • Autosomal recessive: patients have mutations in both CFTR (CF transmembrane conductance regulator gene) alleles • Predominantly dz of northern Europeans, with carrier rate approx 1 in 29 (incidence of dz approx 1/2500) • Lungs and exocrine pancreas primarily affected • Increased sweat chloride concentrations
  • 58. CF Clinical Features • Pulmonary findings – Very thick secretions, recurrent infections, COPD and bronchiectasis • Pancreatic findings – Decreased secretion of pancreatic enzymes such as trypsin and lipase (pts can take supplements) • Other features: meconium ileus in 10-20% newborns with CF • CBAVD: Congenital bilat absence of vas deferens (some pts with absent to very mild features of CF may present with infertility)
  • 59. Fragile X syndrome • X-linked mental retardation syndrome due to unstable CGG repeats in promoter region of FMR1 gene on very distal long arm of X chromosome • Prevalence 16-25/100,000 in gen pop; most common cause of inherited mental retardation
  • 60.
  • 61. Fragile X • Due to expansion of repetitive sequences (similar disorders: Huntington, myotonic dystrophy, various ataxias) • CGG repeat in 3’ untranslated region of FMR1 gene: – – – – 5-40 repeats: normal 41-58 repeats: gray zone 59-200 repeats: premutation >200 repeats: full mutation • This expansion occurs during maternal meiosis (so mothers of Fragile X pts have premutations); risk of expansion to full mutation increases with size of premutation
  • 62. Fragile X clinical features • Both males and females can manifest features (usually more pronounced in males as no other copy of normal X) • Moderate mental retardation (usu. milder in females) • Hyperactivity, hand flapping or biting, temper tantrums • Post-pubertal males: long face, prominent jaw and forehead, large ears, large testes (FMR1 is normally expressed in testes)
  • 63. From:
  • 64. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy • X-linked progressive myopathy due to mutations or deletions within the DMD gene • Incidence: approx 1/3500 male births • DMD encodes dystrophin, expressed in muscle (smooth, cardiac and skeletal) • Mutations lead to partially functional or nonexpressed dystrophin (severity of disease based in part on expression status of dystrophin)
  • 65. DMD clinical features • Progressive muscle degeneration and weakness • Begins with hip girdle and neck flexors, begins to spread distally • Usually manifests by age 5 (Gowers maneuver) and have calf pseudo-hypertrophy • Cardiac findings present in approx 95% pts; chronic heart failure in 50% • Confined to wheelchair by age 12 or so • Median age at death is 18 years
