Abstract

The clinical phenotype associated with trisomy 13 has been recognized for over 30 years. The prognosis for long-term survival is poor due to associated malformations, with fewer than 20% of affected infants surviving beyond the first year of life. It is important in counseling the parents of an infant or fetus with trisomy 13 to be aware of the potential longevity and attainable functional capacity of these individuals. We report the clinical status of a 16-year-old boy with this syndrome and compare his clinical course with other reported long-term survivors.
