Abstract

We report on 2 sibs with the Klein–Waardenburg syndrome; they had dystopia canthorum, blepharophimosis, and bilateral flexion contractures of the fingers. The children's father and paternal aunt are also affected. This report confirms that the Klein–Waardenburg syndrome is an autosomal dominant syndrome.
