abstract

  • We report a girl with severe prenatal and postnatal growth retardation, congenital generalized absence of subcutaneous tissue, and facial and somatic changes with some similarities to Wiedemann-Rautenstrauch syndrome (WRS). However, the patient's condition is sufficiently different from those reported previously to suggest that this patient represents a new syndrome. The abnormalities observed in this patient overlap with those of WRS, Cockayne syndrome, type A (CSA), and osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type III (OPD III), but also include choanal atresia and pigmentary retinopathy.
