    Background: Branchio-oto-renal (BOR) syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by branchial, ear, and renal anomalies. The most common gene mutated in BOR patients is EYA1, the human homolog of the Drosophila eyes absent gene, while mutations in SIX1 gene, the human homolog of...

    Mutation in the MECP2 gene located on the Xq28 chromosome can cause Rett syndrome, the most common cause of intellectual disability in females. In addition to classic form, the mutations in MECP2 could result in atypical Rett syndrome and mild learning disabilities in females. To date, more than...

    Oligodontia is congenital absence of one or more teeth which has familial abnormality and attributable to various mutations or polymorphisms of genes often associated with malformative syndromes. The present case reports a rare case of non syndromic oligodontia in an 8-year-old girl with missing...
