Craniosynostosis: Another feature of the 22q11.2 deletion syndrome



We report on the presence of craniosynostosis in four patients with the 22q11.2 deletion. In light of previous reports of the association, we propose that the occurrence is higher than the general population incidence. Therefore, we suggest that craniosynostosis should be considered a manifestation of the 22q11.2 deletion and conversely that the 22q11.2 deletion should be considered in the differential diagnosis of craniosynostosis. © 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
