Abstract: We report on a patient with developmental delay and several facial characteristics reminiscent of Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, who carries a terminal 4p16.3 deletion of minimally 1.691 Mb and maximally 1.698 Mb. This deletion contains the FGFRL1 gene, but does not include the WHSC1 gene. Given its expression pattern and its involvement in bone and cartilage formation during embryonic development, the FGFRL1 gene represents a plausible candidate gene for part of the facial characteristics of Wolf-Hirshhorn syndrome in 4p16.3 deletion patients.
