Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome is a congenital disorder associated with partial deletion of the short arm of chromosome 4. The majority of patients showed characteristic facial anomalies - so called "Greek-Helmet" appearances - mental retardation, growth retardation, and developmental delay. Here we report the case of a 3-year-old girl who was diagnosed as having Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome immediately at birth with distinct facial anomalies and an abnormal chromosomal karyotype [46,XX,del(4)(p14)]. The patient later presented with status epilepticus and magnetic resonance imaging showed periventricular nodular heterotopia.
Key Words: Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome; Periventricular nodular heterotopia; Status epilepticus
