Linkage analysis in 16 families with incontinentia pigmenti

Eur J Hum Genet. 1997 May-Jun;5(3):168-70.


A locus for the X-linked dominant genodermatosis incontinentia pigmenti (IP) has been linked to markers in Xq28. Here we report high lod scores for markers spanning the interval DXS52-DXYS154 using 16 families, providing further evidence for a single major X-linked IP locus.
