A male propositus and an older sister had a similar pattern of congenital anomalies, including facial asymmetry with hypertelorism, frontal bossing and temporal narrowness, a broad nasal bridge, epicanthal folds, a wide mouth with a thin upper lip, micrognathia, webbed neck, low-set posteriorly angulated ears, and an abnormal hairline. There was also postaxial polydactyly, flexion contractures of the digits, hypotonia, and a congenital heart anomaly. The propositus also had renal anomalies whereas the sister did not, and the sister had a cleft lip and palate not present in her brother. The propositus and a subsequent fetus identified through genetic amniocentesis were determined to have a 46,XY,-18,+der(18),t(17;18)(q25.l;q23)mat chromosome constitution. Clinical findings are compared to those of other reported cases of dup(17q).
