The DiGeorge or velocardiofacial syndrome occurs in 1:4000 live births and is a rare condition which corresponds to chromosome 22 22q11 deletion in 90% of cases. This syndrome may include facial defects, congenital heart disease, thymic hyperplasia, hypoparathyroidism and kidney, immunological and psychiatric disorders. Many of these patients may reach adulthood and require medical care and supervision throughout their whole lives.
