Robinow syndrome in monozygotic twins with normal stature

Clin Dysmorphol. 1999 Apr;8(2):147-50.


Robinow syndrome was found in two monozygotic twins. We describe the clinical and radiographic manifestations in these patients, both with normal stature and one with omphalocele, with a follow-up of 13 years. Families with Robinow syndrome of both autosomal dominant and recessive inheritance have been reported. We apply the criteria suggested to assign isolated cases to one of the two forms and conclude that autosomal dominant inheritance is more likely.
