Charlie M syndrome is an oromandibular-limb hypogenesis syndrome. Six such syndromes have been described as separate entities, but there is a significant overlap among them. Besides Charlie M syndrome, this group includes Moebius syndrome, hypoglossia-hypodactyly, Hanhart syndrome, glossopalatine ankylosis syndrome, and limb deficiency-spleno-gonadal fusion syndrome. Affected individuals have various degrees of tongue anomalies (aglossia, hypoglossia, ankyloglossia) and distal limb deficiencies. All the described cases were sporadic.
