The survival rate of neonates with aberrations of chromosome 16 is very low because they are incompatable with life. We encountered a case of a chromosome 16 aberration in a female neonate who showed multiple congenital malformations suggestive of chromosomal anomaly including round face, hypertelorism, low-set ears, cleft palate, multiple heart anomalies, bilateral hearing loss, right multicystic dysplastic kidey, proximally located thumbs, planovalgus, and muscle hypotonia. We report the case with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Chromosome 16 aberration; Multicystic dysplastic kidney; Multiple congenital anomaly
