Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome: antenatal diagnosis


, : Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome: antenatal diagnosis. Australasian Radiology 38(2): 130-131

The Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome is an unusual complex with variable features. The major findings include abdominal wall defects, macroglossia and visceromegaly. These features should be amenable to antenatal ultrasound detection. Only a few such cases have been reported to date. Antenatal diagnosis allows optimum perinatal care. Hypoglycaemia in the neonatal period is common in these babies and requires early detection and appropriate management to prevent long-term intellectual complications. We present a case where the diagnosis was suggested prior to delivery.

Mdm2 is an E3 ubiquitin ligase for the p53 tumor suppressor protein. We demonstrate that Mdm2 is conjugated with SUMO-1 (sumoylated) at Lys-446, which is located within the RING finger domain and plays a critical role in Mdm2 self-ubiquitination....
