This photographic collage depicts the karyotype that would represent the chromosomal configuration known as Trisomy of a 13–15 group chromosome, otherwise known as Trisomy D, or Patau syndrome (see arrow). Trisomy D also results in nervous system abnormalities, including microcephaly, mental and motor deficits, and a spinal defect known as meningomyelocele, low-set ears, abdominal wall defects, areas of missing skin and hair, rocker-bottom feet (see PHIL 12495), abnormal genital development, kidney and heart defects.
