Deletion in chromosome 10.

Dear all,

Our 2 year old daughter has recently been diagnosed as having a disorder of
chromosome 10 specifically.... monosomy at 10p15 -> pter and trisomy
10q26.1 -> qter. The results were obtained using the F.I.S.H technique.


We are aware of Cri Du Chat syndrome that affects chromosome
5, as this is what the doctor originally thought she may have.
However once the cytogenetic tests were returned it has turned out that she
has the deletion / duplication anomaly described above.

I understand that some of the symptoms/affects of this will be the same as
in all deletion syndromes(possible developmental delays etc) but we are
trying to gain a more in depth understanding of the short and long term
effects that it may have on her.
We are awaiting results of blood test also, to see if this was passed down
genetically.

We can find very little about syndromes relating to chromosome 10 so any
advice,information or pointers to good reference sources would be
appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Ross
