Neonatal death in Marshall-Smith syndrome.Genet Couns. 1998; 9(1):15-8.GC
Marshall-Smith syndrome is characterized by accelerated skeletal maturation, failure to thrive and dysmorphic features. Since 1971, twenty cases of MSS have been reported. We describe another patient with a very early death demonstrating the clinical variability of the syndrome and the importance of systematic X rays of the skeleton for determining the causes of fetal or neonatal death.
