Abstract Deletion of 1p36 (OMIM 607872) is estimated to be the most common distal terminal deletion syndrome. We describe a previously unreported, typically affected two-month-old girl with this microdeletion syndrome, who additionally suffers from left-ventricular non-compaction (LVNC). Recently, this congenital heart defect, characterized by prominent left-ventricular trabeculae and deep intertrabecular recesses, was reported in 12 further patients (excluding those reported only in abstract form) with terminal deletion of 1p36, leading to the conclusion that this cardiomyopathy is common in patients with this chromosomal aberration. We hypothesize that a gene in 1p36 might be responsible for LVNC. This article was published in Eur J Med Genet and referenced in Journal of Clinical & Experimental Cardiology
