Interstitial deletion of chromosome 15: two cases

Hum Genet. 1988 Dec;80(4):401-4. doi: 10.1007/BF00273663.


Two cases of interstitial deletion of chromosome 15 with similar clinical features are presented. In one case, assay of hexosaminidase A enabled us to confirm that the structural gene is located between 15q22 and 15q25 and that it is included in the deletion.
