on this website. However, case reports and genetic journal articles may describe
the findings in only a few persons with a specific deletion, duplication, translocation,
inversion, ring or other chromosome disorder. The symptoms discussed in any article
may or may not apply to a particular individual. Furthermore, the information
contained on the CDO website, in our newsletter and in any electronic or regular

with your medical history and unique situation. CDO’s parent volunteers and medical
advisors cannot know the intricacies of your personal situation. CDO does not
