The Young-Simpson syndrome (YSS) and 1p36 deletion syndrome are both characterized by facial and heart abnormalities, congenital hypothyroidism, and severe growth and developmental retardation. However, the YSS is characterized by the presence of blepharophimosis and epicanthus inversus, findings not described in monosomy 1p36 patients. We describe a girl with YSS, who presented with the typical facial findings, global retardation, congenital hypothyroidism, and congenital dilated cardiomyopathy. Comparative genomic hybridization chromosomal microarray analysis showed a 1p36.3 deletion, a finding not previously reported in other YSS cases. We propose that YSS is a variant of the 1p36 deletion syndrome.

    ABSTRACT: ZET Ohdo Sendromu'nun Say/Barber/Biesecker/Young-Simpson tipi ile birlikte artrogripozis multipleks konjenita (AMK) tanılı bir olguda erken fizyoterapi uygulamaları Young-Simpson sendromu (YSS) ilk kez Young ve Simpson tarafndan hipotiroidizm, konjenital kalp has-talğ, ciddi mental retardasyon ve fasiyal dismorfizmli bir hastada rapor edilmiştir. Nadir görülen insidansndan dolay YSS için fizyoterapinin erken dönem etkileri hak-knda çok az şey bilinmektedir. Bu olgu sunumu, Ohdo Sendromu'nun Say/Barber/Biesecker/Young-Simpson tipinin klinik özelliklerini gösteren 7 aylk bir kz bebekte, erken dönem fizyoterapi uygulamalarnn sonuçlarn sunmak-tadr. Vaka, ayn zamanda artrogripozis multipleks kon-jenita (AMK) ek tansyla literatürdeki ilk olgudur. Bunun yan sra, Ohdo Sendromu'nun Say/Barber/ Biesecker/ Young-Simpson tipinin Türkiye'de rapor edilen ilk olgu-sudur. Olgu, nörogelişimsel tedavi yaklaşm ve seri ortezleme prensipleri temel alnarak tedavi ve takip edilmiştir. Erken fizyoterapi uygulamalaryla, Ohdo Send-romu'nun Say/Barber/Biesecker/Young-Simpson tipi ve AMK tanl bir olguda gelişim bozukluğu ve eklem kontraktürlerinde olumlu gelişmeler kaydedilebilinir. ABSTRACT The Say/Barber/Biesecker/Young-Simpson type of Ohdo Syndrome (YSS) was first reported by Young and Simpson in a patient with hypothyroidism, congenital heart disease, severe mental retardation, and facial dysmorphism. The early effects of physiotherapy for YSS are poorly known because of its rare incidence. This case report presents the results of early physiotherapy interventions in a 7-month-old girl with the clinical features of The Say/Barber/Biesecker/Young-Simpson type of Ohdo Syndrome (YSS). The case is unique in the literature with the additional diagnosis of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AGMC). In addition, this is the first case report of the Say/Barber/Biesecker/Young-Simpson type of Ohdo syndrome from Turkey. The patient was treated and followed up based on neurodevelopmental therapy (NDT) and serial orthosis principles. We suggest that early physiotherapy interventions for an infant with YSS and AGMC can result in improvements in growth deficiency and knee joint contractures.

    ABSTRACT: Young-Simpson Syndrome (YSS) is a rare malformation syndrome characterized by facial dysmorphism, congenital heart abnormalities, congenital hypothyroidism and severe growth retardation. A 5-month-old girl was scheduled to undergo patch closure of atrial septal defect. She had been diagnosed with YSS preoperatively. We report out clinical experience of a case of YSS patient with brief review of related literatures and relevant anesthetic problems.

    ABSTRACT: We report on the clinical, neuropsychological and language characteristics of a boy with left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy (LVNC), agenesis of the splenium of the corpus callosum, minor anomalies of face and limbs, mild mental retardation, and speech and language disabilities. The occurrence of pilomatricoma (calcifying epithelioma) may be part of the clinical spectrum or a fortuitous finding. Compared to other related conditions with LVNC suggests that this is a "new" unique pattern MCA/MR syndrome.
