Abstract

The clinical findings of craniosynostosis, knee dislocation, and short fingers and toes were noted in a newborn who shared characteristics with previously reported patients with Larsen syndrome (LS) and Idaho syndrome (IS). In addition, a patient with typical features of LS also had premature craniosynostosis. We are unaware that patients with LS have had craniosynostosis. On the other hand, the combination of craniosynostosis and knee dislocation has been reported to occur in IS. Since the two syndromes share several phenotypic features, we raise the question whether IS should be included in the spectrum of LS, or if premature craniosynostosis occurs in some patients with LS.
