Trisomy 13 occurs with a frequency of about 1 in 10,000 livebirth. Associated symptoms and findings may vary in range and severity from case to case.

The lifespan of babies affected by the severe malformations are shortened. A newborn with multiple malformations characteristic for Trisomy 13 is presented in this case report.
