Two cases of autism and autosomal chromosome abnormalities are reported: a 14-year-old boy with interstitial deletion of chromosome 17 and a 19-year-old man with an unbalanced translocation of chromosome 5, resulting in monosomy for part of the short arm (5pter-->5p15.3). The possible implications for research into the aetiology of autism are discussed.
