Williams Syndrome definition: A disorder caused by hemizygous microdeletion of about 28 genes on chromosome 7q11.23, including the ELASTIN gene. Clinical manifestations include SUPRAVALVULAR AORTIC STENOSIS; MENTAL RETARDATION; elfin facies; impaired visuospatial constructive abilities; and transient HYPERCALCEMIA in infancy.

Williams syndrome (WMS, WS) definition: A multiple congenital anomaly/mental retardation syndrome with a complex phenotype and age-related variability of expression. Typical facial appearance (elfin facies) is the most characteristic feature of this syndrome. Delayed growth, feeding difficulty, failure to thrive, colic, otitis media, and mental retardation are the early symptoms in infancy. Developmental disabilities and cardiovascular complications become apparent later in childhood. Hypertension, gastrointestinal problems, and genitourinary disorders usually complicate adult development. The phenotype may overlap with hypercalcemia with or without mental retardation and supravalvular aortic stenosis with or without mental retardation.

cardiofacial syndrome definition: Unilateral facial weakness which may be associated with heart defects. The face appears symmetric at rest, the mouth being pulled downward to one side when crying owing to unilateral partial weakness involving the lip depressor muscle (depressor anguli oris). Genitourinary, respiratory, and other abnormalities may be associated. Mental retardation in some cases.
Facial Asymmetry definition: Congenital or acquired asymmetry of the face.
