Abstract: Holt-Oram syndrome (HOS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by congenital cardiac defects and congenital deformities of the upper limbs. Herein, we report the case of a 2-year-old patient presenting with clinical diagnostic criteria of HOS with interatrial and interventricular communication associated with hip dysplasia and upper limb reduction composed of radial ray anomaly. A novel de novo, potentially pathogenic variant in the TBX5 gene at NM_181486.2:c.243-1G>C was identified.

Keywords: Holt-Oram syndrome, heart-hand syndrome, de novo mutation, TBX5.i>
