Abstract

The authors present sibs who exhibit some features of the DiGeorge syndrome. However, they differ from the previously reported cases because of the growth retardation and intrauterine death. All of the DiGeorge cases have been sporadic and it has been suggested that the etiology is teratogenic. This could be an example of the DiGeorge phenotype that is possibly genetic in origin.
