    An interstitial deletion in chromosome 7(p13p15) detected in amniotic fluid cells is presented. After termination, the fetus was noted to have an asymmetrical skull, low set ears, a flattened nose, bifid thumbs and right big toe, pyloric adenomyosis, hypospadias, and simian creases. A brief comparison is made with previously reported cases involving deletions of 7p, including those associated with craniosynostosis.
