We report the clinical and chromosomal findings in 8 patients with deletions of the long arm of chromosome 4. Four of these patients appear to have terminal deletions beginning in band 4q31, and therefore, lack the digital 1/3 of the long arm of chromosome 4. We confirm that deletion of 4q31 leads to qter causes a recognizable syndrome, and we further define the phenotype of that syndrome. A 5th patient has a horter terminal deletion, ie, 4q33 leads to qter. This deletion causes a milder… CONTINUE READING
