Abstract

We report on two patients with 1.7 and 1.2Mb terminal 20p deletions, which have apparently not been reported previously. Both individuals exhibit certain similar features including large fontanelles, ear abnormalities, and seizures. However, even though the deletions are of similar size, there were many disparate features between the two. The deletions in each patient encompass at least 28 genes that may provide useful candidates for ear development and cranial ossification.
