Here we report a case of two siblings with reciprocal aberrations, one presenting with a deletion and the other carrying two novel duplications at 6q13q16.1. Interestingly, both alterations were inherited from a healthy mother carrying a non-reciprocal translocation of 6q13q16 to 15q11. Deletions at 6q13q16.1 have been previously described; however this is the first characterisation of a 6q13q16.1 duplication. In this report we provide a comprehensive molecular and phenotypical characterisation of the affected siblings and discuss the profiles of previously identified patients carrying 6q deletions.
