Dandy-Walker malformation in the Meckel syndrome.Am J Med Genet. 1991 May 01; 39(2):207-10.AJ
The Meckel syndrome is an autosomal recessive condition and includes a heterogeneous group of CNS malformations, most frequently occipital encephalocele. We report on 2 sibs and one other unrelated case with Meckel syndrome in whom the CNS anomaly was the Dandy-Walker malformation, an association not previously described. The criteria used to diagnose the Meckel syndrome are also reviewed.
