Microtia / Atresia with Kidney abnormalities or Neck cysts

The University of Michigan is currently accepting blood samples from children suspected to have BOR Syndrome with 2 out of 3 components plus a family history.

They are sequencing of the EYA1, SIX1, and SIX5 genes on an experimental basis. The consent, blood draw, and shipment to our lab will have to be done by a physician using the paper work at www.renalgenes.org (“Urinary tract malformations”).
