Suggestive evidence for linkage to chromosome 13qter for autosomal dominant type 1 porencephaly.

Author information

Regional Epilepsy Center, Azienda Ospedaliera Bianchi Melacrino Morelli, Reggio Cal., Italy.


A large three-generation family with autosomal dominant type 1 porencephaly from southern Italy was studied. A high rate of miscarriages was observed. Of the nine affected individuals, four displayed a severe phenotype, and five had slight pyramidal signs or mild cognitive abnormalities. The MRI study disclosed unilateral porencephalic cyst, or colpocephaly. A genome-wide screen resulted in suggestive evidence for linkage to chromosome 13qter with a maximum logarithm-of-the-odds score of 3.16, from multipoint analysis, with marker D13S285.
