Two patients are described with trisomy 5p, resulting from the segregation through 3 generations of a t(4:5) (q33 p14) translocation. In the same family, 2 subjects are affected by the 'cri du chat' syndrome. The complex of malformations observed in the 2 trisomic patients is closely comparable to that reported in the few, previously described cases. However, the nonspecific character of these malformations makes trisomy 5p not yet clinically definable as a syndrome.
