We describe a newborn boy one of triplets, whose karyotype was 46,XY,t(8;12)(q22;q21). Prenatal diagnosis of multiple craniofacial anomalies had been made. Following delivery, the patient was thought to exhibit findings consistent with a diagnosis of frontofacionasal dysostosis. We hypothesize that one of the break points of this translocation may involve a gene essential to craniofacial development. (C) 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
