We collected data as to the presence of neoplasia in our cohort of cases and we identified four cases in whom neoplasia was diagnosed and a fifth patient who developed a cholesteatoma (Table 1).A recent analysis of age distribution (January 2017) on the Italian and German Databases for Cri du Chat syndrome is reported in Figure 1.Among the 321 cases, the observed male to female ratio is 0.83; as far as age is concerned, 60 out of 321 (18.7%) are over 40 years and 3 out of 321 (0.9%) are older than 60 years; the oldest patient is now 74 years old.
