Ring Chromosome 7

Ring Chromosome 7 Syndrome


  • An 8-year-old child with a ring chromosome 7 is presented, the first female and the fourth such individual to be described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Respiratory Distress

  • They showed a phenotype consistent with the “ring syndrome” with failure to thrive, minor dysmporphic features and no major anomalies.[tp.amegroups.com]
  • A 62-year-old female patient presented with thrombocytopenia, isolated hepatosplenomegaly, and extremely high levels of LDH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Normal Hearing
  • Genital examination and menstrual history were also normal. Hearing and eyesight were normal. However MM6’s developmental milestones were severely delayed: she had speech delay and severe intellectual impairments.[slideshare.net]

Skin Lesion
  • This association is possibly not fortuitous, particularly since most ring chromosome 7 patients reported to date have pigmented skin lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, patients with partial trisomy have speech difficulty as a distinguishing feature, while patients with partial monosomy have skin lesions as a cardinal feature.[ingentaconnect.com]
Widely Spaced Nipples
  • Clinical examination revealed a dysmorphic face, upward slanting palpebral fissures, broad nose, narrow nares, large lips, short neck, widely spaced nipples, puffy hands and feet, and dark pigmented naevi over the abdomen, thorax and thigh (see Figures[slideshare.net]

  • MLL) can occur in acute myeloid leukemia cases and are associated with a poor prognosis in all leukemias.[hoajonline.com]
  • Interestingly, leukemia with translocations involving MLL shows poor prognosis.[scielo.br]
  • Variation in the size of ring, as well as distribution of mosaicism in different organs, may influence prognosis. Conclusion The mosaicism for a chromosomal anomaly is an under-recognised cause of intellectual disability.[slideshare.net]
