1.Familial Histiocytic Reticulosis (Omenn syndrome)

Dear colleagues,

We have been approached by a family who had 2 children with Familial
Histiocytic Reticulosis (Omenn syndrome). Both children died of the
disease. The mother is pregnant  again. Does anyone have experience or
knowledge regarding prenatal diagnosis?

Please reply to my E-mail address mfrydman@post.tau.ac.il or by fax to

Thanks for your help.

2. Hypochondroplasia/Spinal patterning

We have a family with borderline dwarfism with interesting skeletal/spinal
abnormalities. In all 3 affected generations 2 hemivertebrae are found on
opposite sides of the spine (plus other spinal/bony defects). These 2
hemivertebrae always appear with an identical spinal distance between the
hemivertebrae (a recurring period of 6 vertebrae).
We are interested in defining the cause of the periodic nature of these
defective skeletal elements. We are keen for suggestions or collaborations
into this phenotype. We thought the first step would be to investigate an
FGFR link. Any suggestions would be appreciated?
