19 Patient started having difficulties in school when he was eight years old. His teacher noted that he seemed to be irritable and impulsive; she raised the possibility of attention deficit disorder. In addition, Ronnie was noted to have mild difficulties with spelling and composition. Although he was requiring some additional help with these tasks, his IQ was normal (104) and he had been progressing academically with his peer group. He was tall for his age (95th percentile in height). He had no physical or medical problems. A detailed evaluation by a psychologist revealed some impulsivity, but insufficient findings to support a diagnosis of attention deficit disorder. Tutoring was arranged, and he continued to progress adequately in school. At age 14 years, he develops gynecomastia. At this point, he is seen by an endocrinologist.What is the diagnosis ?Klinefelter SyndromeTreatment: TESTOSTERONE

22 Cri du Chat/ Deletion 5pOne of the most common human deletion syndromes with an incidence 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 50,000 birthsThe syndrome was discovered in France in 1963 by a team headed by the late Jerome Lejeune.The peculiar cry of affected infants sounded to Lejeune like the meowing of a Parisian cat.The syndrome involves severe developmental and mental retardation and a characteristic constellation of congenital malformations:microcephalyround facehypertelorismmicrognathiaepicanthal foldslow-set earshypotoniamotor and mental retardationAlthough the majority of patients die in early childhood, some survive into adulthood and exhibit an IQ below 20.
