The cytogenetic aetiology of chromosome 21 and the holoprosencephaly gene are discussed, focusing on the holoprosenceflia that cytogenetic and gene alterations could function synergically and coincide in their expression with the postulate of the multiple-hit process. Moderate to severe defects may cause mental retardation, spastic quadriparesis, athetoid movements, endocrine disorders, epilepsy and other serious conditions; mild brain defects may only cause learning or behavior problems with few motor impairments.
