Emanuel Syndrome or Supernumerary derivative (22) syndrome is one of the rare genomic syndromes. It is characterised by severe mental retardation, microcephaly, failure to thrive, ear anomalies, pre-auricular tags or sinus, cleft palate or high arch palate, micrognathia, renal anomalies, congenital cardiac defects and genital abnormalities in males . In 99 percent of the cases, one of the parents is a balanced carrier of a translocation between chromosome 11 and chromosome 22. We report the first known case, a male neonate, of supernumerary derivative (22) syndrome.
