We report on three patients with terminal deletions of chromosome 10q and compare them to 15 previously reported patients. A similar facial appearance with a prominent beaked nose, large and/or malformed ears, and a pattern of major abnormalities including severe mental retardation, cardiac anomalies, and anogenital anomalies are reviewed. We feel the manifestation of del 10qter are sufficiently distinct to suggest this diagnosis on clinical examination.
