What causes 3p deletion syndrome?

In most people with 3p deletion syndrome, the deletion occurs for the first time (a de novo mutation) and is not inherited from a parent. De novo mutations are due to a random error that occurs during the formation of egg or sperm cells, or shortly after conception. In a few cases, the deletion is inherited from a parent.[1]
