Small for gestational age hypotonic newborn with multiple anomalies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report the case of a neonate affected by Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS). Usually, WHS is diagnosed late, when patients are investigated to evaluate the cause of their developmental delay; a clinical diagnosis is nevertheless feasible at birth when dysmorphic appearance is present, as in the case we report. In our opinion, if the WHS syndrome is identified at birth, it is possible to develop specific rehabilitation programmes to help and support both patient and family.
