We describe a patient with partial deletion of the short arm of chromosome 8 with an atrioventricular canal. This type of congenital heart defect was found in 4 of the 7 previously reported del (8p) children with a congenital heart defect in which the cardiac assessment was complete. The prevalence of an atrioventricular canal in this aneuploidy is high and suggests a nonrandom association of the 2 anomalies.
