In addition, the size of the uterus and clinical features observable upon pelvic ultrasound can be telltale signs of POI.

Severe feeding problems and congenital laryngostenosis in a patient with 3q23 deletion. Infobox medical condition All stub articles.

Blepharophimosis sequence and diaphragmatic hernia associated with interstitial deletion of chromosome 3 46,XY,del 3 q21q Type I is diagnosed based on the four major features mentioned as well as premature ovarian insufficiency causing infertility or subfertility in females. Abnormal ears, microcephaly, and growth retardation have been reported occasionally.


Ishikiriyama and Goto described a girl with BPES, microcephaly of postnatal onset, mild developmental retardation, and a de novo deletion del 3 q Some current clinical trials also are posted on the following page on the NORD website: Anophthalmia Cystic eyeballCryptophthalmos Microphthalmia. Ishikiriyama and Goto suggested that the association of BPES with microcephaly or other manifestations of ‘general hypoplasia of the CNS’ such as hypotrophy of the cerebellar vermis may represent a contiguous gene syndrome because of the observed association with interstitial deletions.

A gene for premature ovarian failure associated with eyelid malformation maps to chromosome 3qq The severity of the ptosis and blepharophimosis require most children to adopt a chin-up backwards head-tilt position and to recruit the frontalis in elevating the lids, leading to raised, arched eyebrows.

Traditionally, correction of blepharophimosis, epicanthus inversus and telecanthus is done between the ages of three to five years, followed by ptosis correction after about one year. To manage the eyelid malformation, surgery is performed with the purpose of correcting the synfrome, epicanthis inversus, telecanthus and ptosis.


The diagnosis of BPES is glepharophimosis on four clinical findings which syncrome present at the time of birth. Repair of the ptosis usually requires frontalis suspension for adequate lift.

Diagnosis The diagnosis of BPES is based on four clinical findings which are present at the time of birth. Clinical signs of this are endocrinologic or hormonal, including elevated serum levels of FSH and LH and decreased serum concentrations of estradiol and progesterone important hormones in the female reproductive system.

Common clinical features of patients with 3q23 deletion include BPES, growth and mental retardation, microcephaly, ear and nose dysmorphism, and joint and digit abnormalities. Dominant genetic disorders occur when only a single copy of an altered gene is necessary to cause a blepharophimosid disease.
