OBJECTIVES: A preterm boy was born with multiple anomalies including cleft palate and ventricular septal defect. Chromosome analysis on a blood sample identified additional material within the long arm of chromosome 2. SETTING: The newborn was in the neonatal intensive care unit requiring tertiary care during his 22 days of life. RESULTS: A supplementary fluorescent in situ hybridization test was performed to confirm the extra chromosomal material was chromosome 2. Parents' chromosomes were normal, indicating a de novo duplication of 2q13q23. CONCLUSION: Comparison of this case with those in the literature suggests involvement of cleft palate of cases with duplication of 2q13.
