This photographic collage depicts the karyotype that would represent the chromosomal configuration known as a deletion syndrome, which in this case, involved the long arms of chromosome 18 (arrow). Some of the symptoms associated with a chromosome 18 long-arm deletion, include mental retardation, microcephaly, i.e., smaller cranial circumference with an accompanying reduced brain size, hypertelorism, i.e., increased distance between the eyes, a short stature, mid-face retraction, outer-ear deformities, fingerprint whorl abnormalities, hypotonicity, and a downward-slanting mouth.
