Summary

Report is given of a mentally retarded and dysmorphic patient with a partial monosomy 8q, resulting from a de novo translocation t(4;8)(q13; q213).

Determination of erythrocyte gluthathione reductase (E-GSR) activity in the proposita shows activity in the normal range. Previous evidence for of the assignment of E-GSR locus to the short arm of chromosome 8 is confirmed.
