Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome is a rare, sporadic genetic condition that predominantly affects females due to defects in chromosome 4. It affects all races in ~1:50,000 live births and causes malformations of the face, brain, heart, muscles, bones, and urogenital tract. There is in utero screening available, but no treatment or prevention of the syndrome.
