Schinzel-Giedion syndrome

Int J Urol. 2001 May;8(5):237-41. doi: 10.1046/j.1442-2042.2001.00291.x.


A 2-month-old girl was brought to the Department of Pediatrics at Wakayama Rosai Hospital because of poor feeding since 1 month of age. She was the third child of young healthy non-consanguineous parents whose first son was healthy but whose second son had died of 18 trisomy. Physical examination showed midfacial hypoplasia with coarse dysmorphic features, choanal stenosis, remarkable abdominal distention and bilateral talipes equivarus. Abdominal ultrasonography, computed tomography and drip infusion pyelogram showed left severe hydronephrosis and right moderate hydronephrosis. Having diagnosed Schinzel-Giedion syndrome, a left ureteroneocystostomy with tailoring was performed to preserve renal functions and to eliminate the urinary tract infection at the age of 3 months.
