Prevalence is unknown. To date, CHIME syndrome has been described in 8 cases.
CHIME syndrome is characterized by early-onset migratory ichthyosiform dermatosis, bilateral ocular coloboma, conductive hearing loss, seizures, intellectual disability, and characteristic facial features: brachycephaly, mild upslanting of the palpebral fissures, pale blue irides, hypertelorism, flat midface and philtrum, anteverted nostrils, thin upper lip, and excessive creases around a wide mouth. Ears are low-set with thick overfolded helices. Teeth are widely spaced and square in shape. Less constant findings are cleft palate or a less severe equivalent (bifid uvula and/or submucous cleft), cardiac defects (tetralogy of Fallot or transposition of the great vessels), pectus excavatum and supernumerary nipples.
CHIME syndrome is caused by mutations in the glycosylphosphatidylinositol gene PIGL located to 17p12-p11.2.
Transmission is autosomal recessive.
