Syndrome (11q Deletion or 11q-) is a rare chromosomal abnormality
in which a portion of the 11th chromosome is missing. It affects
about one in every 100,000 births. People who have this disorder
may have heart problems, speech and language problems, specific
facial characteristics, and mild to severe mental retardation.
