Hypomelanosis of Ito (incontinentia pigmenti achromians) and mosaicism for a microdeletion of 15q1.


Hypomelanosis of Ito (incontinentia pigmenti achromians), a sacrococcygeal complex dysembryoma, seizures, severe cerebral lesions, mental retardation, chorioretinal atrophy, hemihypotrophy of the body, and skeletal anomalies are reported in a female infant of North African origin. Karyotype analysis revealed mosaicism for a microdeletion of the proximal region of 15q similar to that observed in Willi-Prader syndrome. The possibility of gene assignment of Ito's disease or that it may represent a nonspecific marker for mosaicism are discussed.
