Deletions of the long arm of chromosome 10

Am J Med Genet. 1985 Jan;20(1):181-96. doi: 10.1002/ajmg.1320200122.


Patients with a partial deletion of the long arm of chromosome 10 are rare. We report eight new cases involving various segments of 10q: one terminal deletion (10q26), four (8;10) translocations resulting in terminal deletions (10q26) and duplications (8q24.3), a de novo interstitial deletion (10q23), an interstitial deletion due to a (10;13) translocation (10q11.2----10q22.1), and a ring (10p15----10q26).
