Figure 5.1 Chromosomal rearrangements and chromosome 22q11. Differences in gene dosage involving 22q11 result in genomic disorders: interstitial hemizygous deletions are associated with DiGeorge/velocardiofacial syndrome; partial trisomy of 22pter-q11 is seen in supernumerary der(22) (Emanuel syndrome); and partial tetrasomy is seen in cat eye syndrome where an additional marker chromosome 22 containing an inversion duplication involving 22.q11 is seen.
