Abstract

Chromosomal microdeletions and microduplications are known to cause variable clinical features ranging from apparently normal phenotype to intellectual disability, multiple congenital anomalies, and/or other variable clinical features. 7q11.23 region deletion is the cause for Williams-Beuren syndrome and duplication of same region 7q11.23 causes distinguishable clinical phenotype. Familial inheritance is known for both microdeletion and microduplication of 7q11.23 region. Here, we report a patient of paternally inherited 7q11.23 microduplication with developmental delay, macrocephaly, and structural brain malformations.
