Abstract

We report on a 5-year-old male with expressive language delay, developmental delay, short stature, and facial anomalies consistent with Floating–Harbor syndrome (FHS). In addition, he developed an intramedullary ganglioglioma. This is the first reported case of a tumor associated with FHS, and may represent an as yet undefined genetic link between spinal cord tumors and FHS, adding this syndrome to the growing list of disorders with a predisposition for tumor development. © 2009 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
