    A newly described partial trisomy of the short arm of chromosome number 7 is reported in a familial translocation between 7 and 22. The unbalanced translocation was found in one family member, the propositus, and the balanced form in 5 other members. The possibility of this translocation being a rare telomeric attachment previously undescribed in humans is discussed. Prominent clinical features include general mental and motor retardation, microbrachycephaly, and cardiac and oral abnormalities.
