Evidence for an autosomal recessive form of cleidocranial dysostosis

Clin Genet. 1975 Jul;8(1):20-9. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-0004.1975.tb01950.x.


Three cases of cleidocranial dysostosis from two unrelated consanguineous families are reported. The family setting, the distribution of the affected members, plus the severity of involvement suggest that there is also an autosomal recessive form of this disorder.
