Direct mutation analysis as the preferred method for carrier diagnosis in families with isolated cases of haemophilia B


, : Direct mutation analysis as the preferred method for carrier diagnosis in families with isolated cases of haemophilia B. Haemophilia 2(4): 196-201

Approximately one-third of haemophilia B cases are described as isolated due to their occurrence in families with no prior history of the disorder. In this report, two families with isolated haemophilia B were studied by the standard method of restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis coupled with factor IX activity and antigen levels with the aim of achieving carrier diagnoses. The limitations of using this approach in the determination of carrier status were highlighted by diagnostic problems arising in both families. The problems included difficulty in interpreting bioassay results, homozygosity for the RFLP marker in a key family member and the possibility of germline mosaicism. Unequivocal carrier diagnosis in the two families was ultimately achieved by direct mutation analysis.
