Chapter One


Chromosome 1p partial trisomy is a rare chromosomal abnormality with a limited number of patients reported. Although a distinctive phenotype is not apparent, the reported patients do share some frequent features.

MAIN FEATURES: Craniofacial anomalies, growth delay, malformed ears


Growth: Growth delay

Performance: Developmental delay, motor delay, hypotonicity, mental retardation, seizures

Eyes: Ptosis, hypertelorism, long eyelashes

Craniofacies: Microcephaly, anteverted nares, micrognathia, cleft lip/palate, at nasal bridge, high-arched palate, malformed ears, epicanthal folds

Other: Syndactyly, thoracic stenosis, adrenal hyperplasia, genital ambiguity, cryptorchidism

CLINICAL COURSE: Early demise has been reported in several patients.

CYTOGENETICS: Inherited rearrangements are unusual.
