    We report on a prenatal diagnosis by FISH of a familial 22q11 deletion associated with DiGeorge syndrome (DGS). The deletion was seen in the proband with symptoms of full DGS, in the physically normal father, and in a subsequent pregnancy. After birth this child showed hypocalcaemia, a T cell deficit, and a right sided aortic arch.
