A newly recognized autosomal recessive syndrome with short stature and oculo-skeletal involvement.Am J Med Genet A. 2006 Jul 15; 140(14):1491-6.AJ
This report describes a young girl and her cousin presenting with postnatal short stature, strabismus, photophobia, retinitis pigmentosa, short neck, rhizomelic shortening of the long bones, short and slightly bowed humeri with prominent deltoid tuberosities, short and wide ribs and clavicles, dorso-lumbar scoliosis, biconcave vertebral bodies of the thoraco-lumbar spine, and narrowed lumbar canal. In addition, in the girl there were amelogenesis imperfecta of the hypomaturation type, and the radiographs showed short distal ulnae, sloping epiphyses of the radii, short femoral necks, and slightly flat uncovered femoral heads. The children's parents are first cousins. Differential diagnoses are discussed and the possibility of a newly recognized oculo-skeletal syndrome is raised.
