Abstract

AIM:

Reppor of a rare congenital abnormalities.

OBSERVATION:

We report a rare case of Pallister-Killian syndrome in a 33 weeks gestation infant. In addition to the characteristic phenotype, this patient had a cleft palate, diaphragmatic hernia and sacral appendage. These additional manifestations are not among the Pallister-Killian syndrome's features. The diagnosis was made in antenatal period by cytogenetic studies and showed mosaic 47, XY+i (12p). Presence of diaphragmatic hernia makes this syndrome, prenatally letal, similar to the Fryns syndrome and then requires skin biopsy and fibroblast chromosome examination for cytogenetic diagnosis.
