Abstract

A 13-year-old mentally retarded girl with severe cutaneous and osseous syndactyly of the hands and feet, cleft lip/palate, and ectodermal dysplasia is presented. We conclude that the pattern of malformations described represents a new multiple malformation syndrome. A comparison with Zlotogora-Ogür syndrome is presented. Am. J. Med.
