Abstract

The chromosomal segment 6q24-q25 comprises a contiguous gene microdeletion syndrome characterized by intrauterine growth retardation, growth delay, intellectual disability, cardiac anomalies, and a dysmorphic facial phenotype. We describe here a 10-year follow-up with detailed clinical, neuropsychological, and cytomolecular data of two siblings, male and female, who presented with developmental delay, microcephaly, short stature, characteristic facial dysmorphisms, multiple organ anomalies, and intellectual disability. Microarray analysis showed an 8.5Mb 6q24.2-q25.2 interstitial deletion. Fluorescence in situ hybridization analyses confirmed the deletions and identified an insertion of 6q into 8q13 in their father, resulting in a high recurrence risk. This is the first report in sibs with distinct neuropsychological involvement, one of them with stenosis of the descending branch of the aorta.
