A case with a terminal deletion of the long arm of chromosome 7

Summary

A malformed female infant with ade novo 7q terminal deletion (q32→qter) resulting from interchange between chromosome 4 and 7 was described. Her phenotype had a close resemblance to those of the previously reported cases. A further delineation of clinical features of 7q terminal deletion syndrome was attempted.
