    Abstract

    The WAGR syndrome (Wilms' tumour, aniridia, genital anomalies, and mental retardation) is well documented to be associated with a deletion of 11p13. We present a patient with a del(11)(p11.2p14.2) who as well as all the features of WAGR syndrome has multiple exostoses. We suggest that this could be a possible locus for hereditary multiple exostoses.
