Potocki-Lupski Syndrome is a continuous gene syndrome caused by the microduplication of 3.7 Mb segment at 17p11.2 characterized by developmental delay, intellectual disability, the developmental deficit for psychomotor and expressive speech, autistic features, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and attention deficit. Using CMA, we detected the first de novo 3.7 Mb microduplication at 17p11.2 in a boy with an intellectual disability from Central Brazil.
