Conotruncal anomaly face syndrome is associated with a deletion within chromosome 22q11.
22q11.2 deletion syndrome: DiGeorge, velocardiofacial, and conotruncal anomaly face syndromes. Curr Opin Pediatr 2001;13:465-72.
This microdeletion was shown in some patients with DiGeorge syndrome, velo-cardiofacial syndrome and conotruncal anomaly face syndrome (2).
22q11.2 microdeletion syndrome includes DiGeorge syndrome, velo-cardiofacial syndrome and conotruncal anomaly face syndrome. Interstitial microdeletions in the 22q11 chromosome have been shown with a rate of 94% in patients with DiGeorge symdrome, with a rate of 83% in patients with velo-cardiofacial syndrome and with a rate of 15% in patients with conotruncal heart defect alone (9, 10).
