This site is specifically designed and supported for the benefit of families of children with Distal Trisomy 10q. The site also represents families of children with Proximal Trisomy 10q, as well. The primary objectives are: If you would like to submit information on your child, please send us an e-mail or regular mail.

What is Distal Trisomy 10q?

Distal Trisomy 10q is an extremely rare syndrome in which a person has an extra end (distal) portion of chromosome 10, specifically from the long arm (q). In the case of Proximal 10q the extra portion is from the opposite end of the q arm near (proximal) the center of the whole chromosome where the q and p arms join together. This can occur spontaneously at conception (de novo) or from a translocation in one of the parents. In the latter case, one of the parents has the tails of chromosome 10 and another chromosome swapped. The parent has a full set of genes, but when the child gains one half of these chromosomes from the affected parent, the child ends up with an unbalanced set of genes. The effect on the child can vary from mild to very severe and is related to how many extra genes are present from 10q. Additionally, in translocation cases, there are generally missing genes from the complimentary chromosome of the translocation. It has been commonly believed that most cases are from translocations; however, from the information we have collected from our members, it appears that significantly more cases are actually de novo.

A Bit About Us

We are Daryl and Leslie Anderson.  Daryl is a manager of integrated circuit design at Hewlett-Packard in Corvallis, Oregon.   Leslie is a homemaker.    We have a son, Jess, born 10/1/93, with Distal Trisomy 10q. We have two other children, Jenny and Eric, which are a few years older than Jess. For more on Jess, click on his link in the Families section below.  We are not medically trained, but run this service out of a desire to help those of us that are dealing with this rare condition that seems to have no other support organization and apparently no specialists.  We welcome any comments and corrections to information on the site.


Join the Community

Click here to learn how to share your stories on this site and to join the googlegroup (you must be a Trisomy 10q family to join).

One way that this site can be useful to you is by helping you connect with families with children that have similar karyotypes (chromosome listing). Typically, children with similar duplicated or omitted chromosome segments will have similar medical and developmental issues. The key word to remember here is "similar" though. Each child will be their own person. You can find each child's karyotype on their page (in the Families section below). Note that there are two tables: One for Distal 10q, and one for related disorders such as Proximal 10q.

By added your child's information to this site, other's with similar situations will be more able to connect with you.


Join the Research

We are partners with CoRDS, a part of Sanford Research (non-profit). CoRDS a registry with the purpose of encouraging research into rare conditions though connecting researchers to people with rare conditions. We encourage you to consider enrolling with CoRDS. It's free and easy to do.

CoRDS describes themselves as follows:   The Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford registry is a national and central registry of individuals of any age who have been diagnosed with a rare disease (undiagnosed individuals are also eligible for enrollment). The registry holds basic contact and diagnostic information on those who agree to enroll. Any researcher with the appropriate approval can then request information from the registry that might be helpful to the research they are conducting. By enrolling in CoRDS, participants who qualify will be notified of any opportunities to participate in clinical trials and other research opportunities.


Below are specifics on children with Distal Trisomy 10q. If you would like to add your child to this site, please contact us with your information. We encourage you to share your experience through a letter, and possibly a photograph.
