Summaries for Chromosome 15q13.3 Deletion Syndrome

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 15q13.3 microdeletion syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by a deletion of several genes on chromosome 15. When a syndrome is caused by the deletion of several genes, it is also known as a microdeletion syndrome or a contiguous gene deletion syndrome. Individuals with 15q13.3 microdeletion syndrome may have very different signs and symptoms from other affected individuals (even within the same family), or no symptoms at all. Features of the condition may include mild to moderate intellectual disabilities, learning delays, or normal intelligence; autism spectrum disorders; epilepsy (recurring seizures); and mental illness (such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder). Various dysmorphic (abnormally formed) features have been reported, but there are no consistent physical features among individuals who have the condition. 15q13.3 microdeletion syndrome is caused by a deletion on the long arm of chromosome 15 that spans at least 7 genes and usually includes the CHRNA7 gene.It can be inherited in an autosomal dominant manner with reduced penetrance, or can occur as a new (de novo) deletion. Treatment typically focuses on individual signs and symptoms when possible.

MalaCards based summary : Chromosome 15q13.3 Deletion Syndrome, also known as chromosome 15q13.3 microdeletion syndrome, is related to chromosome 15q11-q13 duplication syndrome and epilepsy, idiopathic generalized. An important gene associated with Chromosome 15q13.3 Deletion Syndrome is DEL15Q13.3 (Chromosome 15q13.3 Microdeletion Syndrome). Affiliated tissues include heart, and related phenotypes are macrocephaly and frontal bossing

Genetics Home Reference : 25 15q13.3 microdeletion is a chromosomal change in which a small piece of chromosome 15 is deleted in each cell. The deletion occurs on the long (q) arm of the chromosome at a position designated q13.3. This chromosomal change increases the risk of intellectual disability, seizures, behavioral problems, and psychiatric disorders. However, some people with a 15q13.3 microdeletion do not appear to have any associated features.

OMIM : 57 Heterozygous deletion of chromosome 15q13.3 is associated with a highly variable phenotype, even within families segregating the same deletion. Individuals with the deletion may have mild to moderate mental retardation or learning difficulties, or may have no cognitive deficits. Some individuals have epilepsy. Various dysmorphic features have been described, but there is no consistent or recognizable phenotype (review by van Bon et al., 2009). Patients with homozygous deletions in this region have severe neurodevelopmental problems, with epileptic encephalopathy, hypotonia, and poor growth (Endris et al., 2010). (612001)
