This syndrome is characterised by sensorineural deafness, short stature, femoral epiphyseal dysplasia, umbilical and inguinal hernias and developmental delay (growth retardation and mild intellectual deficit).
It has been described in two brothers born to consanguineous parents.
They also have dysmorphic features (triangular face, pointed chin) and bilateral obstruction of lacrimal ducts.
This syndrome is transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait.
