Abstract

Example 1: A twenty-five year old university graduate requests counseling. He himself is mentally and physically normal, and his fianceé, a girl of good family, is equally normal, genetically speaking. The girl’s parents, responsible people, were interested in their future son-in-law’s family. To their horror, they discovered the situation illustrated in the pedigree in Fig. 1. Two half-sisters of the young man suffer from v. Pfaundler Hurler’s disease; they are both badly malformed. The father and grandfather of the proband both manifest Dupuytren’s contracture of the hand, and added to all this, the father’s sister suffers from a congenital dislocation of the hip.
