Fraser syndrome with renal agenesis in two consanguineous Turkish families

Am J Med Genet. 1990 Aug;36(4):477-9. doi: 10.1002/ajmg.1320360421.


We report on 3 girls and one boy from 2 sibships with Fraser syndrome and renal agenesis. They were born to consanguineous parents, which supports an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance.
