it represents the DiGeorge syndrome/velocardiofascial syndrome....its the microdeletion of this chromosome which cause this disorder

Characteristic signs and symptoms include heart defects that are often present from birth, an opening in the roof of the mouth (a cleft palate) or other defects in the palate, recurrent infections caused by problems with the immune system, and mild differences in facial features. Affected individuals may also have kidney abnormalities, low levels of calcium in the blood (which can result in seizures), a decrease in blood platelets (thrombocytopenia), significant feeding difficulties, and autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and Graves' disease. Skeletal differences are possible, including abnormalities of the spinal bones (vertebrae), extra fingers or toes (polydactyly), and premature fusion of certain bones of the skull (craniosynostosis).

i think the age of onset is decreasing, so trend shown by depression will mean higher incidence lesser than 30, IMHO
