Abstract

Williams syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by multiple contiguous gene deletions in chromosome 7. Presentation in early life is most often a result of luminal stenosis of right- and left-sided arterial vasculature. We report the case of a newborn infant who had a rapidly progressing diffuse form of arteriopathy that required two surgeries and one percutaneous balloon dilation within the first 2 months of her life.
