Partial trisomy 7p with partial monosomy 9p is a rare disorder with only 3 cases reported. Both these abnormalities i.e., partial trisomy 7p and partial monosomy 9p result in distinct clinical phenotypes. However, patients with combined 7p trisomy/9p monosomy present with a phenotype consistent with trisomy 7p. We present a fourth case of trisomy 7p/monosomy 9p with long term follow-up and document the medical complications associated with this disorder. Long term follow-up of patients with chromosome abnormalities provides a unique opportunity to document the medical history and complications associated with such abnormalities.
