[Fryns syndrome: report of the first case in the national literature].Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex. 1993 Sep; 50(9):666-70.BM
The Fryns' syndrome is characterized by multiple congenital deformities such as cranio-facial anomalies, diaphragmatic hernia, pulmonary hypoplasia, distal anomalies of the extremities and diverse cardiovascular, digestive, urogenital and central nervous system malformations. Heredity trait is recessive-autosomic with variable expression. Mortality is the rule. Diagnosis must be suggested by early polyhydramnios, premature delivery, familial tendency and perinatal mortality. In the present paper, a case with the most significant features and with other features not previously described is reported.
