Velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS) is a disorder that has
been associated with over thirty different features. (A
disease or disorder that has more than one identifying
feature or symptom is a syndrome.) The name velocardiofacial syndrome comes from the Latin words
"velum" meaning palate, "cardia" meaning heart and "facies"
having to do with the face. Not all of these identifying
features are found in each child who is born with VCFS.
