Summary

Lymphoedema–distichiasis syndrome (LDS) is a syndromic form of primary lymphoedema associated with double rows of eyelashes (distichiasis). Mutations in the FOXC2 gene were reported to be associated with this syndrome. In this study, we identified in a Chinese LDS pedigree a novel FOXC2 gene mutation, C.370C>T, leading to p.Leu124Phe. The novel mutation is not a common polymorphism, but is co-inherited with the disease.
