    A patient with a de novo terminal deletion of the short arm of chromosome 7 (p22.1--pter) is described. Facial dysmorphism, a congenital heart defect, and genital hypoplasia were evident. There were no signs of craniosynostosis. Our observation confirms that deletion of 7p22 is not necessarily associated with craniosynostosis.
