Molecular Genetic PathologyPediatric Nephrology. Many genetic causes of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis FSGS have been described. A paradox is that the science in the molecular biology, which generally appears of high quality, is not mirrored by a similarly critical analysis of the renal pathology. FSGS has been applied to such a wide range of conditions that it can reasonably be said to have no useful meaning. Attempts to refine the term have been largely ignored. Study of papers on genetic causes of FSGS found various clinical features.

Over the past 5 to 10 years, important advances were made in the understanding of meningioma biology. Progress in molecular genetics probably represents the most important accomplishment in the comprehensive knowledge of meningioma pathogenesis. Several genes could be identified as targets for mutation or inactivation. Additional chromosomal regions were found to be commonly deleted or amplified, suggesting the presence of further tumor suppressor genes or proto-oncogenes, respectively, in these regions. Histopathologically, the most important innovation is represented by the revised WHO classification in the year Meningioma grading criteria in the new classification scheme are more precise and objective, and should thus improve consistency in predicting tumor recurrence and aggressive behavior.
Approval marks the culmination of a 4-year process designed to improve the quality of training for physicians, to standardize the training curriculum, and to assure the highest quality of medical care in this rapidly expanding and central field of medicine. MGP is the subspecialty of Medical Genetics and Pathology in which the principles, theory, and technologies of molecular biology and molecular genetics are used to make or confirm clinical diagnoses of mendelian genetic disorders, disorders of human development, infectious diseases, and malignancies, to assess the natural history of those disorders, and to provide the primary physician with information with which to provide optimal care for individuals affected with these disorders. The basic technologies of rapid genetic analysis central to molecular biology emerged a little more than two decades ago, and the application of these tools to clinical diagnosis has mushroomed in the last decade. This rapid growth of applications and of prospects for new approaches to molecular diagnosis led the leaders of the ABMG and ABP boards to develop joint certification in this area. Now that the ABMS has approved the structure, the road to the creation of training programs and certifying examinations can be short.

Crouzon syndrome exhibits considerable phenotypic heterogeneity, in the aetiology of which genetics play an important role. However, very little is known about the cellular and molecular factors leading to severity of this phenotype. Revealing the molecular pathology of craniosynostosis will be a great value for genetic counselling, diagnosis, prognosis and early intervention programs. This mini-review summarizes the fundamental and recent scientific literature on genetic disorder of Crouzon syndrome and presents a graduated strategy for the genetic approach, diagnosis and the management of this complex craniofacial defect. Craniosynostosis is a birth defect characterized by premature fusion of one or more of the calvarial sutures before the completion of brain growth and development, leading to restricted growth of the skull, brain, face and central nervous system development. More than craniosynostosis syndromes have been reported with an estimated birth with an incidence of live births.
