Abstract

In this report, a patient carrying a 650 kb deletion and a 759 kb duplication of chromosomal 21q22.3 region was described. Facial dysmorphic features, hypotonia, short stature, learning impairment, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety and depression were observed clinical characteristics. Mentioned copy number variants were the shortest in length reported so far. The current study hypothesized that the presence of a susceptibility locus for autism spectrum disorder associated with depression and anxiety may be located in a 200 kb region between the PCNT and PRMT2 genes. The current study aimed to provide insight into the human genome morbidity map of chromosome 21.
