Oto-palato-digital syndrome, type II--an X-linked
skeletal dysplasia.

Brewster TG, Lachman RS, Kushner DC, Holmes LB, Isler RJ, Rimoin DL.

We report on two male infants with a lethal skeletal dysplasia characterized by cleft palate,
midface hypoplasia, downward-slanting palpebral fissures, small thorax, and bowed limbs
with absent fibulae. The clinical and radiographic changes are similar to those seen in the
recently proposed oto-palato-digital syndrome, type II [Fitch et al, 1983]. The disorder is
X-linked with heterozygous females being more mildly affected.
