Abstract

A new hereditary syndrome is described in 13 living members of 4 generations in a single kindred. The syndrome is characterized by malformations and hypoplasia of the hands and feet, and by varying degrees of duplication of the female genital tract. Radiographic findings in the hands and feet, and associated dermatoglyphic patterns, are characteristic of the syndrome. It is transmitted as an autosomal dominant with full penetrance and variable expression.
