Chromosome 8 partial deletions?

Laura - posted on 10/05/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




Just putting the word out there for any parents who have children with Chromosome 8 partial deletions (or whole) Our daughter Hanna is 5 and has a partial deletion on Chromosome 8 (12-21.3) unbalanced. I have yet to come across anyone else with this exact deletion but have met parents of children with one or two numbers the same that are missing. The main parts of Hanna's condition that are noticeable is her severe expressive language delay, microcephaly (small head circumference) and an overall global development delay. She is a very happy creative expressive young lady despite these challenges.

Looking forward to hearing from anybody who may have children with similar chromosomal abnormalities.

Hi, I have a daughter with chromosome 8 partial deletion. It's the last 11 genes on P end of the chromosome. She's 8 months old and slacking on motor skills. She seems over all healthy, thank God and loves to talk and eat!:) She hasn't rolled over yet and now learning how to lift her head and sit up with help. She also has a translocation between chromosome 8 and X ..and a duplication of Xp. You called it, she has it! I would love to interact with other mommies with similar chromsome disorders! Thanks!
