Cri-du-Chat Syndrome Definition: An infantile syndrome characterized by a cat-like cry, failure to thrive, microcephaly, MENTAL RETARDATION, spastic quadriparesis, micro- and retrognathia, glossoptosis, bilateral epicanthus, hypertelorism, and tiny external genitalia. It is caused by a deletion of the short arm of chromosome 5 (5p-).
cri du chat syndrome Definition: infantile syndrome characterized by a cat-like cry, failure to thrive, microcephaly, mental retardation, spastic quadriparesis, micro- and retrognathia, glossoptosis, bilateral epicanthus, hypertelorism, and tiny external genitalia; caused by a deletion of the short arm of chromosome 5.
chromosome 5p deletion syndrome Definition: Deletion of the short arm of chromosome 5 characterized by a variable clinical picture consisting of severe mental deficiency, growth retardation, multiple abnormalities and a peculiar crying sound resembling that of a suffering kitten (hence the synonym crying cat syndrome or cri du chat syndrome), that disappears within weeks or months after birth.
Cri du Chat Syndrome Definition: A genetic syndrome resulting from a partial deletion on the short arm of chromosome 5. It is characterized by a cat-like cry in infancy, microcephaly, mental retardation, growth failure, round face, hypertelorism, and cardiac failure.
Diethylstilbestrol Definition: A synthetic nonsteroidal estrogen used in the treatment of menopausal and postmenopausal disorders. It was also used formerly as a growth promoter in animals. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), diethylstilbestrol has been listed as a known carcinogen. (Merck, 11th ed)
diethylstilbestrol Definition: synthetic nonsteroidal estrogen used in the treatment of menopausal, postmenopausal, and other disorders sensitive to estrogens; an epigenetic carcinogen.
diethylstilbestrol Definition: (dye-ETH-ul-stil-BES-trol) DES. A synthetic hormone that was prescribed from the early 1940s until 1971 to help women with complications of pregnancy. DES has been linked to an increased risk of clear cell carcinoma of the vagina in daughters of women who used DES. DES may also increase the risk of breast cancer in women who used DES.
diethylstilbestrol Definition: DES; the acronym for diethylstilbestrol, a synthetic, nonsteroidal form of estrogen. A well-known teratogen and carcinogen, DES inhibits the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, thereby blocking the testicular synthesis of testosterone, lowering plasma testosterone, and inducing a chemical castration. Check for "http://www.cancer.gov/Search/ClinicalTrialsLink.aspx?id=43081&idtype=1" active clinical trials or "http://www.cancer.gov/Search/ClinicalTrialsLink.aspx?id=43081&idtype=1&closed=1" closed clinical trials using this agent.

dysequilibrium syndrome (DES) Definition: A nonprogressive childhood disorder characterized by a lack of equilibrium, brain dysfunction, retarded psychomotor development, hypotonia, and perceptual abnormalities. Major features are the postural abnormalities manifested by unilateral displacement and sensory disturbances in the form of altered perception. The patient usually complains of nausea, occasional vomiting, and dizziness occurring spontaneously or after change in the position of the head. A sensation that the eye si "swimming," impaired perception or colors, distorted perception of objects, and unsteady gait are the usual complaints. The syndrome was reported in Swedish and in Montana Hutterite patients. Not to be confused with a complication of hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis which is termed "disequilibrium syndrome."
Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome Definition: A syndrome caused by large deletions of the telomereic end of the short arm of CHROMOSOME 4 (4p) in Wolf-Hirchhorn syndrome critial regions (WHSCRs). Several candidate genes have been identified including WHSC1 and WHSCH2 which appear to be responsible for the core phenotype and in combination with other linked and unlinked genes determine the severity and inclusion of rarer phenotypes. Most cases have a characteristic cranio-facial defect often referred to as "Greek helmet face" - a combined result of MICROCEPHALY, broad forehead, prominent glabella, HYPERTELORISM, high arched eyebrows, short philtrum and micrognathia. In addition there is mental retardation, growth delays, EPILEPSY, and frequently a wide range of midline and skeletal defects, including HYPOSPADIAS; CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS; CLEFT LIP; CLEFT PALATE; colobomata; CLUBFOOT; clinodactyly; SCOLIOSIS; and KYPHOSIS.
chromosome 4p deletion syndrome Definition: Partial deletion of the short arm of chromosome 4 with severe psychomotor deficiency and abnormalities of the craniofacial structures, heart, kidneys, and other organs. The most common defects include asymmetric skull, microcephaly, high forehead, beaked nose, hypertelorism, epicanthal folds, and prominent glabella. The phenotype of proximal interstitial deletion (del4p15) differs from that in the Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome and is characterized by distinct facies, multiple minor congenital anomalies, psychomotor retardation and normal growth. Deletion 4p15-16 is expressed in a different phenotype which includes long face, midface hypoplasia, upslanted palpebral fissures, epicanthal folds, large beaked nose, highly arched palate, thick lower lip, micrognathia, broad and short neck, broad hands and feet, tall and thin habitus, delayed growth and mental development, and hypotonia.
Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome Definition: A genetic syndrome resulting from a partial deletion on the short arm of chromosome 4 (4p deletion syndrome). It is characterized by mental retardation, microcephaly, seizures, muscle hypotonia, a distinctive facial appearance with prominent forehead and wide set eyes, growth failure with malformations of the spine, hands, and feet, congenital heart defects, and genitourinary malformations.
