A further patient with the Pitt-Rogers-Danks syndrome of mental retardation, unusual face, and intrauterine growth retardation

Am J Med Genet. 1986 May;24(1):29-32. doi: 10.1002/ajmg.1320240105.


A further case of a syndrome of pre- and postnatal growth retardation, characteristic face, and unusual palmar creases is described. This child also had hypoplasia of labia majora and minora, deafness, and head nodding. Apparently sporadic occurrence in this family does not rule out autosomal recessive inheritance of this syndrome first described by Pitt, Rogers, and Danks in 1984.
