Williams Syndrome (FISH Test)

Williams syndrome  is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by a distinctive, "elfin" facial appearance, along with a low, flattened nasal bridge, a long philtrum, an unusually cheerful demeanor and ease with strangers; developmental delay coupled with strong language skills; and cardiovascular problems, such as supravalvular aortic stenosis and transient hypercalcaemia.  Most individuals with Williams syndrome are highly verbal relative to their IQ, and are overly sociable, having what has been described as a "cocktail party" type personality. Individuals with WS hyperfocus on the eyes of others in social engagements. Williams syndrome is caused by a deletion of about 26 genes from the long arm of chromosome 7.
