Acro-cardio-facial syndrome associated with neuroepithelial cyst: a case report.Genet Couns. 2007; 18(2):247-50.GC
Acro-cardio-facial syndrome (ACFS) is a very rare genetic syndrome. Only 5 patients have been reported in the literature so far. A female neonate presented with limb abnormalities, cleft palate and congenital heart disease was diagnosed as ACFS. Her cranial magnetic resonance imaging revealed a huge cerebral neuroepithelial cyst. To our knowledge, this is the first case of ACFS in the literature associated with a neuroepithelial cyst in the brain.
