Variable Clinical Features in a Large Family With Diamond Blackfan Anemia Caused by a Pathogenic Missense Mutation in RPS19
Discussion: This large family with DBA demonstrates the heterogeneity of phenotypes that can be seen within the same genotype. Most family members presented with steroid-responsive anemia in infancy and subtle congenital malformations, findings consistent with recent genotype-phenotype studies of RPS DBA. However, two family members were relatively unaffected, underscoring the importance of further studies to assess modifier genes, and epigenetic and/or environmental factors which may result in normal erythropoiesis despite underlying ribosome dysfunction. This large, multigenerational family highlights the need for indivi...

What Causes Facial Nerve Palsy?
Discussion Facial nerve palsy has been known for centuries, but in 1821 unilateral facial nerve paralysis was described by Sir Charles Bell. Bell’s palsy (BP) is a unilateral, acute facial paralysis that is clinically diagnosed after other etiologies have been excluded by appropriate history, physical examination and/or laboratory testing or imaging. Symptoms include abnormal movement of facial nerve. It can be associated with changes in facial sensation, hearing, taste or excessive tearing. The right and left sides are equally affected but bilateral BP is rare (0.3%). Paralysis can be complete or incomplete at prese...
