The authors report on a female infant with partial trisomy 9 (pter-->q12) together with partial monosomy 22 (pter-->q11.23) that included DiGeorge critical region (DGCR), as a result of adjacent-2 disjunction. In addition to the clinical features characteristic of trisomy 9p syndrome, the patient had Truncus arteriosus type A2, bilateral hydronephrosis, palatal anomaly, retrognathia, and laryngeal hypotonia, which are likely to be attributed to 22q11.2 deletion. This patient appears to be the first reported case with such unbalanced translocation resulting from a paternal reciprocal translocation. For live birth, the risk for male carrier is 8.7-17.4%. It is important to consider this higher risk when counseling. Precise study concerning the presence of the DGCR can facilitate in the better understanding of the condition.
