Definition

A very rare syndrome associating microcephaly, micrognathia, oculocutaneous albinism, hypoplasia of the distal phalanx of fingers and agenesia of the distal end of the right big toe. It has been described in two siblings. Both brother and sister had psychomotor retardation and died in the course of a respiratory infection. The reported cases suggest that the condition is hereditary, and is transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait. [from SNOMEDCT_US]
