Default special needs

Friends are considering adopting from another country a "special needs" child. The family has few details, but the information they have received so far suggests the 4-year-old child has had surgery for an endocardial cushion defect, is short for his age, and had a history of what sounds like surgically repaired duodenal atresia at birth. You are suspicious this child may have which of the following syndromes?
a. Kleinfelter
b. Waardenberg
c. Marfan
d. Down
e. Turner
