Pure duplication of 19p13.3.Am J Med Genet A 2013; 161A(9):2300-4AJ
Chromosomal abnormalities involving 19p13.3 have rarely been described in the published literature. Here, we report on a girl with a pure terminal duplication of 6.1 Mb on 19p13.3, caused by an unbalanced translocation der(19)t(10;19)(qter;p13.3)dn. Her phenotype included severe psychomotor developmental delay, skeletal malformations, and a distinctive facial appearance, similar to that of a patient previously reported by Lybaek et al. [Lybaek et al. (2009); Eur J Hum Genet 17:904-910]. These results suggest that a duplication of >3 Mb at the terminus of 19p13.3 might represent a distinct chromosomal syndrome.
