This case report reviews genetics consultations on psychiatrically hospitalized school-age children. Six of 100 patients were noted to have positive genetic findings: four with congenital anomalies and/or biochemical/metabolic abnormalities and two with chromosomal abnormalities. Three of these patients are used to illustrate the occurrence of genetic abnormalities in psychiatrically hospitalized children. The indications for chromosomal analysis are discussed.
