Blepharocheilodontic syndrome or lagophthalmos: a child with overlapping features

Clin Dysmorphol. 2005 Jul;14(3):151-153.


The Blepharocheilodontic (BCD) syndrome (MIM119580) and lagophthalmos syndrome (MIM600990), have striking overlap in their clinical presentation. We describe a child with manifestations of both syndromes, supporting the proposal that the two entities represent a continuum of a wider syndrome.
