De novo interstitial deletion in the long arm of chromosome 11: a case report
The 11q terminal deletion disorder is a rare genetic disorder associated with numerous clinical features. A few case reports have been made about de novo interstitial deletion of chromosome 11q. However, due to the heterogeneity in size and position of the deletions, a clear genotype-phenotype correlation is not easily made. Here we report a case interstitial 20.5-Mb deletion at chromosome 11q13.4q21, as confirmed by array comparative genomic hybridization.
