1. Osteopetrosis and Paget's disease of bone
In our Department of Medical Genetics we are trying to localize and
identify genes involved in different types of osteopetrosis and in Paget's
disease of bone.  Therefore we are looking for families with more than
one affected individual for one of both conditions.  In case you are in
contact with such a family and are willing to add this to our study on a
collaborative basis, please contact us:

2. Kartagener syndrome--pt request
Have this disease and also have 2 other sisters with this same disease.
We are on a lung transplant list in Chapel Hill, NC. If there is anyone who
may have this disease please let us know. Thank you.

3. Beals Syndrome
I have seen for genetic counselling a family with Beals Syndrome,
congenital contractural arachnodactyly.
We have stored DNA from the propositus,his parents, 4 sibs of the mother,
and the maternal grandmother. In addition to the propositus,his mother and
a maternal aunt showed the same symptoms.
I am interested in collaboration to study this family  at the molecular level.

4. Ocular Complications in Marfan
I am writing on behalf of a friend of mine who has a 5 year old boy with
Marfan syndrome and significant ocular complications.
The parents would like to know the opinion of ophthalmologists and/or other
specialists as to the further surgical management of the boy.
A brief medical story follows: in July 1995 the boy underwent scleral
buckling, anterior left vitrectomy, peripheral criopexy, ICCE. No
occurred. Now he's using a soft contact lens +12. The patient has his right
lens partially dislocated.
Right eye: 1/10 natural. Left eye: 1/20 with contact lens.
The parents would like to ask ophthalmologists who have already seen or
treated such patients, and specifically
they wonder whether or not to operate the right eye, and what consequences
might be expected. In fact, as far as I can tell, they were told different
opinion by different specialists. The boy is currently being taken care of
at the Institute of Opththalmology of the University of Verona School of
Verona, Italy. The family lives in Verona, Italy.
Thank you very much.

5. Adrenomyeloneuropathy--Patient Request
Apparent Patient Location: US
Am patient who suffers disease, am looking to gather as much info past
and present as possible on research that has been done and what is
currently being studied.
