Abstract

We describe two unrelated patients with a severe form of acrofacial dysostosis. Facial defects in both include coloboma of the lids, micrognathia, lateral oral clefting, palatal clefting, and severe auricular anomalies, with one showing bilateral cleft lip and right oblique facial clefting as well. Both have absent forearms and thumbs. Lower limbs were severely reduced in both infants with the feet attached either to the femur or directly to the trunk. Parental consanguinity was present in one case. The condition of these two infants appears to represent either a severe form of Nager acrofacial dysostosis or a new type of acrofacial dysostosis.
