Levy-Hollister syndrome.
Pediatrics. 1988 Jul; 82(1):96-9.Ped

Abstract

The Levy-Hollister syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by lacrimal malformations, simple cup-shaped ears, hearing loss, hypodontia and enamel dysplasia, and upper limb malformations. Renal anomalies have been noted variably. Two families with this disorder have been described previously. Recently, a third family with the Levy-Hollister syndrome was evaluated. Unusual features present in this family included bilateral nasolacrimal duct fistulas, radial aplasia, and unusual dermal ridge patterns. Early recognition of this disorder should prompt investigation for renal anomalies and/or hearing loss. It should also lead to consideration of surgical attempts to correct the lacrimal abnormalities or conductive hearing loss, thereby reducing the long-term morbidity in affected patients.
