Quick Reference

A disorder in which there are frequently cleft palate, cardiac anomalies, typical facies, and learning disabilities, although other abnormalities may further exacerbate matters. It is caused by a 1.5–3.0-Mb hemizygous deletion of chromosome 22q11.2, and haploinsufficiency of the T-box1 gene is responsible for most of the physical malformations (point mutations in the T-box1 gene may have similar consequences). See goosecoid; thymic hypoplasia.

Subjects: Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
