16p11.2 deletion syndrome

Common Name(s)

16p11.2 deletion syndrome

16p11.2 deletion syndrome is a condition caused by a deletion of a small piece of chromosome 16. The deletion occurs near the middle of the chromosome at a location designated p11.2. People with 16p11.2 deletion syndrome usually have developmental delay and intellectual disability. Most also have at least some features of autism spectrum disorders. Some affected individuals have minor physical abnormalities; however, signs and symptoms vary. Some affected individuals have no identified physical, intellectual, or behavioral abnormalities. Most cases of 16p11.2 deletion syndrome are not inherited, although affected individuals can pass the condition on to their children.
