Abstract

Tissue specific mosaicism of trisomy 9 in a patient with severe torsion scoliosis: We report on a female patient who had mosaic trisomy 9, presenting with severe scoliosis and mental retardation. Scoliosis is seldom reported in patients with mosaic trisomy 9 syndrome. FISH studies in our proband detected no trisomic cell line in the paravertebral muscle.
