4p- phenotype in an infant with t(4p-;19p or q+)mat translocation.


Four family members had an apparently balanced t(4p-;19p or q+) translocation indentified by Giemsa banding. One of these individuals, a male infant, has a 4p- phenotype with seizures, large bilateral cleft palate, abnormal anterior fontanel, abnormally shaped ears, hypertelorism, small penis with third-degree hypospadias, and bilateral simian creases. It is theorized that 4p material containing loci essential for normal development was lost in this infant by a simple deletion or "aneusomy by recombination."
