In brief: Have seen a couple

In three decades as a pediatrician, I have seen a couple.
My first was during training & one in my practice.Most are felt to be caused by new mutations of one copy of chromosome 7. Years ago diagnosis was based on physical findings, today a gene test or "fish" test probe can be done on potential patients for confirmation.
