2q23.1 microduplication syndrome

Also known as: Dup(2)(q23.1), Trisomy 2q23.1



2q23.1 microduplication syndrome is a rare chromosomal anomaly syndrome, resulting from the partial duplication of the long arm of chromosome 2, primarily characterized by global developmental delay, hypotonia, autistic-like features and behavioural problems. Craniofacial dysmorphism (arched eyebrows, hypertelorism, bilateral ptosis, prominent nose, wide mouth, micro/retrognathia) and an affable personality are also commonly associated. Minor digital anomalies (fifth finger clinodactyly and large, broad first toe) have occasionally been reported.

Bilateral ptosis Drooping of both upper eyelids
Ptosis Drooping upper eyelid, Eye drop, Blepharoptosis, Eyelid ptosis [more] The upper eyelid margin is positioned 3 mm or more lower than usual and covers the superior portion of the iris (objective); or, the upper lid margin obscures at least part of the pupil (subjective).

This term should only be used to describe children younger than five years of age.
