Acrorenal mandibular syndrome is characterized by the combination of unusual limb deficiencies (split feet or/and hands), renal anomalies (polycystic kidneys, renal agenesis, etc.), mandibular hypoplasia and uterine anomalies in females. It is an extremely rare disorder with only seven cases described so far. Two of the families described had consanguineous parents and several siblings presenting with the syndrome, suggesting an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. Although the severity of signs varies from case to case, prognosis remains very poor as all the reported patients died around birth. Prenatal diagnosis of renal and/or limb anomalies is possible by ultrasonography.
