The 4p deletion syndrome, also known as Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, is a well-known genetic disorder caused by a partial deletion of the short arm of chromosome 4. The great variability in the extent of the 4p deletion and the possible contribution of additional genetic rearrangements leads to a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations. Herein, we present our experience with eight cases of 4p deletion syndrome, ascertained prenatally between 1998 and 2016 at our hospital.
