Editor's Note In this article by Castori et al., the authors describe a stillborn infant with the Fontaine-Farriaux syndrome. In the ensuing paper, Delgado et al. report on a boy with what the authors consider to be the third case of the Petty-Laxova-Wiedemann syndrome. Both authors raise the issue as to whether these two entities might represent the same disorder. Individuals called Fontaine-Farriaux syndrome have been infants, while those with the Petty-Laxova-Wiedemann were older individuals when described. Additional reports will be needed to resolve the question. Despite that issue, these two papers help delineate the phenotypes of the two named disorders. John C. Carey
