6p25 deletion is a rare but well-known entity. The main clinical features include an abnormal facial appearance, developmental delay, and ocular anomalies. Cardiac anomalies are frequently seen but remain poorly delineated. We describe a 4-year-old girl with 6p25.3 deletion, which includes the FOXC1 gene, typical dysmorphic features associated with developmental delay and oculo-motor anomalies. Aortic valve dysplasia was diagnosed early in life. The cardiac lesion progressed very rapidly between the age of 3 and 4 years requiring aortic valve replacement. Genomic analysis of blood and excised valve tissue showed down-regulation of FOXC1 but also FOXC2 expression in the diseased aortic valve. This allows us to speculate on the potential role of FOXC1 in aortic valve anomalies.
