Robin sequences and complexes: causal heterogeneity and pathogenetic/phenotypic variability

Am J Med Genet. 1999 Jun 4;84(4):311-5.


Robin sequence has been the subject of numerous general papers and has also been cited in specific syndrome articles. Evidence is provided that the condition is not only causally heterogeneous but also pathogenetically and phenotypically variable, necessitating the use of the terms "Robin sequences" and "Robin complexes."
