The deletion occurs near the middle of the chromosome at a location designated q11.2—signifying its location on the long arm of one of the pair of chromosomes 22, on region 1, band 1, sub-band 2. It has a prevalence estimated at 1:4000. The syndrome was described in 1968 by the pediatric endocrinologist Angelo DiGeorge. 22q11 deletion is also associated with truncus arteriosus (see TOF).
