    DiGeorge Syndrome is a rare, genetic disorder due to the partial deletion of a chromosome.  Once thought to affect 1 in 4,000 people, the numbers are closer to 1 in 1,200.

    It is the most common cause of congenital heart disease next to down syndrome.

    Two hospitals considered leaders in DiGeorge Syndrome are Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
