[2] proposed a classification of overgrowth syndromes by ordering them according to their typical timing of clinical presentation as follows: (a) syndromes exhibiting overgrowth in the neonatal period, including Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, Sotos syndrome, Weaver syndrome, and Perlman syndrome and (b) overgrowth syndromes usually identified in childhood, including Klinefelter syndrome and Proteus syndrome.
This means that subtle variations of methylation in ICRs could represent a drastic deregulation of the expression of imprinted genes, leading to important phenotypic consequences, as observed in the Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (6).
Igf2, an important growth factor, is highly active during fetal development and its misregulation leads to overgrowth disorders such as Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome. It exerts its growth promoting effects through the Igfl receptor, which induces an intracellular signaling cascade that stimulates cell proliferation.
