The abnormalities include low‐set dysplastic ears, hypoplastic orbital bones, upslanting and small palpebral fissures, prominent cheeks with a relatively large mouth, micrognathia, abnormal creases of the hands and a congenital heart defect. With age her hypotonia and feeding difficulty have improved. Her mother has no detectable chromosome abnormality.
