    A case is described of selective immunoglobulin A deficiency in association with an 18q+ anomaly, apparently the result of a break at 18q23 and a de novo translocation. The presentation is compared with the phenotypic and immunological features in an IgA deficient 18q-- patient. The findings in these two patients suggest that gene(s) concerned with regulation of IgA synthesis are located on the distal long arm of chromosome 18 between 18q23 and qter.
