Sample text

Occasional females will, by chance, have the normal X chromosome inactivated in the majority of cells and will then manifest systemic symptoms of the disorder caused by the mutant gene. In X linked dominant disorders such as incontinentia pigmenti, female gene carriers have patchy skin pigmentation that follows Blaschko’s lines because of the mixture of normal and mutant cells in the skin during development. Chromosomal mosaicism is not infrequent, and arises by postzygotic errors in mitosis. Mosaicism is observed in conditions such as Turner syndrome and Down syndrome, and the phenotype is less severe than in cases with complete aneuploidy.

However, the age at onset, severity and age at death is more variable in intermediate SMA type II. Variation in the severity of an autosomal recessive disorder between families is generally explained by the specific mutation present in the gene. In cystic fibrosis, delta F508 is the most common mutation and most affected homozygotes have pancreatic insufficiency. Patients with other particular mutations are more likely to be pancreatic sufficient, may have less severe pulmonary disease if the regulatory function of the gene is preserved, or even present with just congenital absence of the vas deferens.
