    Abstract

    Two cases of 14q proximal partial trisomy in sisters from the same family are reported. Clinical features included craniofacial dysmorphism, skin depigmentation, slight anomalies of the limbs, muscular hypertonia, and physical and mental retardation. The third sister had an abnormal phenotype, different from that of her sibs, and proved to be a carrier of a balanced translocation (2;14)(q36;q21) inherited from their phenotypically normal mother.
