We report the case of a male fetus with an oto-palato-digital (OPD) type II syndrome and multiple
congenital anomalies (MCA) including omphalocoele, hypospadias, thoracic dysplasia, skeletal
abnormalities, pulmonary hypoplasia and an absent right adrenal gland. These MCA are sometimes
reported in Melnick-Needles syndrome, which leads us to discuss the possibility that the spectrum
of malformations in these two syndromes might be due to two allelic forms of the same X-linked
gene.
