We report on a Japanese boy with HDR syndrome (hypoparathyroidism, sensorineural deafness, renal dysplasia) and recurrent cerebral infarctions in the basal ganglia. The patient experienced cerebral infarctions four times between age 7 months and age 20 months. Chromosome analysis of the patient demonstrated a 46,XY, del(10)(p14p15.1) de novo. This suggests that the putative gene responsible for HDR syndrome is located at 10p14-p15.1.
