Clin Dysmorphol. 1997 Jul;6(3):233-7. doi: 10.1097/00019605-199707000-00006.


We report a child from a highly inbred Omani family with hypoparathyroidism, growth failure, developmental delay and a distinctive facial appearance. Thirty cases with this syndrome have been previously reported; 22 came from the Arab Gulf Countries and eight were Arabs living in Israel. These cases are reviewed.
