We present here a 7 year old girl with the clinical signs of Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS). Only on high resolution banding was a deletion of 4p16.3 suspected in both the proband and the father. Further studies using simultaneous R banding and FISH, with cosmid probe pc847.351 containing the mildly repetitive fragment 847-EC, confirmed the diagnosis and showed a paternal balanced translocation t(4;8) (p16.3;q24.3).
