ABSTRACT We describe four unrelated children who were referred to two tertiary referral medical genetics units between 1991 and 2005 and who are affected with juvenile polyposis of infancy. We show that these children are heterozygous for a germline deletion encompassing two contiguous genes, PTEN and BMPR1A. We hypothesize that juvenile polyposis of infancy is caused by the deletion of these two genes and that the severity of the disease reflects cooperation between these two tumor-suppressor genes.

    ABSTRACT: Germline PTEN (Phosphatase and TENsin homologue deleted on chromosome TEN) mutations predispose to phenotypically diverse disorders that share several overlapping clinical features: Cowden syndrome, Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome, Proteus syndrome and Proteus-like syndrome, collectively classified as PTEN hamartoma tumour syndrome (PHTS). The meticulous acquisition and documentation of PHTS phenotypic data at different levels and the profiling of the plethora of genetic changes in PTEN and other genes within the same or related pathways are important in resolving the challenge of discriminating heritable cancers from sporadic PHTS-mimicking clinical features. The characterization of PTEN and PTEN-related pathways from a multidisciplinary perspective underscores the importance of incorporating data from different -omics, which is crucial for the advancement of personalized medicine.

    ABSTRACT: A case is reported here of juvenile polyposis in a 15-year-old girl. She was diagnosed upon the assessment of the dysenteric syndrome. Coloscopy and gastro-scopy had shown polyps of variable size whose histo-logical study confirmed the hamartomatous character typical of the youthful non adenomatous polyps free of dysplasia. There was no localization in the small bowel. Coloprotectomy with ileoanal anastomosis was carried out in view of the importance of diarrhoea and the impacts on the general state of health.

    ABSTRACT: For multimedia applications, 30Frame/s 2/3 inch 1.3M pixel progressive scan interline-transfer CCD (IT-CCD) image sensor employs an optimized well for the horizontal CCD (H-CCD) and a wide bandwidth amplifier for 49 MHz operation. An 8-phase drive for vertical CCDs (V-CCDs) makes it possible to carry out a variety of operations such as 1050 line progressive mode and 1049 line wide dynamic range interlaced mode. For still camera use, removing residual charges stored in the V-CCDs before exposure is essential. A narrow-channel barrier overflow drain attached under the H-CCD automatically drains extra charge and requires neither overflow control gate nor additional masks
