Clin Genet. 1984 Nov;26(5):472-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-0004.1984.tb01091.x.


This report concerns a mother and son with a small terminal deletion of the short arm of chromosome 5 (del(5)(qter----p15.1:). Both mother and son had superficial resemblance to patients with classical Cri-du-Chat Syndrome, but lacked the severe mental and growth retardation generally associated with such cases.
