We report a patient with multiple dysmorphic signs and congenital malformations, representing a combination of clinical features of duplication (12p) and deletion (22)(q11.2) syndromes. The girl had overgrowth at birth, showed abnormal cranio-facial findings, cleft uvula, a complex conotruncal heart defect, a polycystic right kidney, and an umbilical hernia. She died at the age of 6 months of cardio-respiratory failure. Cytogenetic examination demonstrated a derivative chromosome 12 replacing one of the two chromosomes 22. The paternal karyotype was normal 46,XY while the mother's karyotype was 46,XX,rcp(12;22)(q13.2;q11.2). According to the published data, all patients with deletion 22q11.2 combined with other unbalanced chromosomal aberration have a more severe clinical expression than those with interstitial deletions.
