Overgrowth syndromes is a group of disorders usually characterized by unusually large size at birth, excessive postnatal growth, and increased weight, increased length, and/or increased head circumference. In this study, SSCP will be used to search for microdeletions in the NSD1 gene in 20 patients who exhibited prenatal syndromic macrosomies such as Sotos Syndrome, Sotos-like Syndrome, Weaver Syndrome, Beck-with Wiedmann Syndrome, Bannayan-Zonana Syndrome, Simpson-Golabi-Behmel Syndrome, Elejalde Syndrome, Nevo Syndrome and Marshall-Smith Syndrome. In those not presenting microdeletions, the genes NSD1 and PTEN will be sequenced in order to determine the most frequent deletions, phenotype-genotype correlations and establish a molecular diagnosis for macrosomic syndromes.
