During the period 1969 to 1972, a total of 23 newborn infants with different types of autosomal trisomy syndrome were observed. Intrauterine growth of the 11 neonates with trisomy 21 (Down's syndrome) was normal and their gestational age near term (36.3 ± 0.9 wk). The infants with trisomy 13 (Patau's syndrome) were prematurely born (gestational age, 34.6 ± 1.2 wk) and had a moderate but significant (-15.7 ± 6.3%) retardation in birth weight, whereas birth length was within normal limits of the corresponding gestational age. The 4 newborns with trisomy 18 (Edwards's syndrome) were mature as to gestational age (39.8 ± 1.6 wk), but heavily retarded in both birth weight and length (-38.2 ± 4.8 and -17.6 ± 2.6%, respectively). A case of cat eye syndrome is also presented.
