Abstract: The Velo-Cardio-Facial Syndrome (VCFS), caused by a submicroscopic deletion in the long arm of chromosome 22, has a broad clinical spectrum of ENT manifestations including for instance velopharyngeal dysfunction, hearing problems and laryngotracheal anomalies. In the current report we present guidelines for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of the ENT manifestations in patients with a deletion 22q11, based on our experience and the literature.
