We report on a 9-year-old female patient with facial anomalies and developmental delay, heterozygous for three de novo rearrangements: a paracentric inversion of chromosome 7, an apparently balanced translocation between chromosome 1 and 7, involving the same inverted chromosome 7, detected by standard cytogenetic analysis [46,XX, der(7) inv(7)(q21.1q32.1)t(1;7)(q23q32.1)]; and a 2p16.1 deletion, spanning about 3.5 Mb of genomic DNA, shown by SNP-array analysis [arr 2p16.1 (56,706,666-60,234,485)x1 dn]. Clinical features and cytogenetic imbalance in our patient were similar to those reported in five published cases, suggesting that this genomic region is prone to recombination and its hemizygosity results in a distinct although variable spectrum of clinical manifestations.
