Abstract

It is well known that a deletion within chromosome 22q11.2 has been identified in most cases of congenital heart disease (CHD) with DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) and velo-cardio-facial syndrome (VCFS). Whether the 22q11.2 deletion is associated with isolated CHD is controversial. Our data is consistent with previous publications which show that the 22q11.2 deletion is associated with isolated CHD even though it is rare.
