Hi Marina.. 22q11 deletion is a chromosomal condition where the microscopic piece of the long arm of chromosome 22 is missing.. it has a series of anomolies which range from heart defects, cleft palates, short stature, hearing loss but to sum it up,it is a communication disorder.. my 19 yr old daughter was born with it and now my 5 yr old is showing similar behavioural issues.. she doesnt have any heart defect though..thanks for asking..
