    A female with the Weaver syndrome is reported. In addition to the characteristic manifestations of overgrowth and advanced bone age, the facies were typical, with a broad forehead, hypertelorism, a long philtrum, micrognathia, and large ears. Like most other patients with Weaver syndrome, she was developmentally delayed, hypertonic, and had a hoarse voice. Other clinical features included prominent finger pads, narrow hyperconvex nails, small and narrow chest, unilateral dislocated distal ulna, and abnormal thoracic vertebrae.
