An R248C mutation of FGFR3 leading to thanatophoric dysplasia type I

An R248C mutation of FGFR3 leading to thanatophoric dysplasia type I

Acta Paediatrica Taiwanica 40(4): 262-264

Thanatophoric dysplasia (TD) is the most common form of lethal neonatal dwarfism with micromelic shortening of the limbs, macrocephaly, platyspondyly, and reduced thoracic cavity. R248C mutation in the extracellular domain of fibrobast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) was common in TD type I. Two TD type I patients were examined for R248C mutation by use of restriction digestion and direct sequencing. The results showed that both patients carried R248C mutation. Because of the homogeneity of R248C mutation among different ethnic populations, all TD patients should be analysed using this PCR-based method presented in this work.
