We report on a homozygous frameshift deletion in DDX59 (c.185del: p.Phe62fs*13) in a family presenting with orofaciodigital syndrome phenotype associated with a broad neurological involvement characterized by microcephaly, intellectual disability, epilepsy, and white matter signal abnormalities associated with cortical and subcortical ischemic events. DDX59 encodes a DEAD-box RNA helicase and its role in brain function and neurological diseases is unclear. We showed a reduction of mutant cDNA and perturbation of SHH signaling from patient-derived cell lines; furthermore, analysis of human brain gene expression provides evidence that DDX59 is enriched in oligodendrocytes and might act within pathways of leukoencephalopathies-associated genes...

Clinical syndromes caused by defects in the primary cilium are heterogeneous but there are recurrent phenotypic manifestations that define them as a collective group known as ciliopathies. Dozens of genes have been linked to various ciliopathies but large patient cohorts have clearly revealed the existence of additional genetic heterogeneity, which is yet to be fully appreciated. In our search for novel ciliopathy-linked genes through the study of unmapped ciliopathy phenotypes, we have identified two simplex cases with a severe ciliopathy phenotype consistent with oro-facio-digital syndrome type IX featuring midline cleft, microcephaly, and colobomatous microphathalmia/anophthalmia...

Oro-facial-digital syndrome type II (OFD-II) is characterized by frenulated tongue, midline cleft lip, high arched or cleft palate, micrognathia, syndactyly and polydactyly, bilateral reduplicated hallux, conductive hearing loss, choroidal coloboma and normal intelligence. There are nine forms of oro-facial-digital syndromes with different modes of inheritance. A young female with features of oro-facio-digital syndrome type-II is being reported.

Joubert syndrome (JBTS), related disorders (JSRDs) and Meckel syndrome (MKS) are ciliopathies. We now report that MKS2 and CORS2 (JBTS2) loci are allelic and caused by mutations in TMEM216, which encodes an uncharacterized tetraspan transmembrane protein. Individuals with CORS2 frequently had nephronophthisis and polydactyly, and two affected individuals conformed to the oro-facio-digital type VI phenotype, whereas skeletal dysplasia was common in fetuses affected by MKS. A single G218T mutation (R73L in the protein) was identified in all cases of Ashkenazi Jewish descent (n=10)...

The Mohr-Claussen syndrome or oro-facial-digital syndrome type II (OFD-II)] is characterised by tongue lobulation, midline cleft lip, high arched or cleft palate, broad nasal root with wide bifid nasal tip, hypertelorism, micrognathia, brachydactyly, syndactyly and polydactyly, bilateral reduplicated hallux, conductive hearing loss and normal intelligence. In view of the different modes of inheritance and the different prognoses of the two oro-facio-digital syndromes, type 1 and type 2, it is important to establish a correct diagnosis in these patients...

We describe a uniquely illustrated case of orofaciodigital syndrome type 1. We document many of the possible features of this disorder in a young girl using multiple imaging modalities. Furthermore, we prove that the cysts in kidney and liver are not in contact with the excretory system using MRI, something that to our knowledge has not been previously reported.

Episodic tachypnea is a typical neonatal presentation of Joubert syndrome, but may also occur in infants with other anomalies of the cerebellar vermis. Even though fetuses at risk for Joubert syndrome are usually closely followed by ultrasound, this respiratory pattern has only once been described prenatally. We describe a patient who presented prenatally with posterior meningocele, Dandy-Walker cyst, and four limb polydactyly on ultrasound. Amniocentesis showed a normal male karyotype and normal 7DHC. At 31 weeks, episodic fetal tachypnea was noted on ultrasound...

Congenital malformations involving the face, oral cavity, and digits are the main findings in the oro-facio-digital (OFD) syndromes. Various eye anomalies and central nervous system involvement have also been reported in this condition. Here we report on a Brazilian boy with features belonging to the clinical spectrum of the OFD syndromes. He also had additional findings of periventricular nodular heterotopia (PVNH), asymmetric limb involvement, and microphthalmia. This unusual pattern of anomalies has not been reported previously and appears to be unique...

We describe a newborn with multiple congenital anomalies consistent with an oro-facio-digital syndrome (OFDS). These are a group of inherited syndromes that have in common anomalies of the tongue (bifid or lobulated tongue with hamartomas), the face (median cleft lip) and the digits (brachydactyly, polydactyly, clinodactyly and/or syndactyly). OFDS has been classified into 11 types. The case described in this paper had manifestations overlapping with OFDS II (Mohr) and OFDS IV (Mohr-Majewski) and OFDS VI (Varadi)...

We report on an 8-year-old Haemophilus influenzae type b-vaccinated girl with meningitis due to H. influenzae type f. The girl had an oro-facio-digital syndrome and a hypogammaglobulinemia, obviously predisposing the patient to invasive infections. Treatment with cefotaxime was successful.Incidence, predisposing factors and the influence of H. influenzae type b immunization on invasive infections with non-type b H. influenzae strains in children are discussed.

In 1954, Papillon-Léage and Psaume described a dominant, X-linked condition which they named oro-facio-digital (OFD). This condition was split into at least nine syndromes, the more common being OFD I. We report a girl with OFD I syndrome followed up for 23 years. Clinical examination showed cleft palate, median cleft lip, multiple oral frenulae, lobulated tongue and brachydactyly. There was no mental retardation. At 19 years of age, renal insufficiency appeared. A renal transplantation was performed. The parents were unaffected...

In view of the different modes of inheritance and the different prognoses of the two oro-facio-digital syndromes, type 1 and type 2, it is important to establish a correct diagnosis in these patients. A case of type II oro-facio-digital syndrome is being reported and the distinguishing clinicoradiological features with type I are compared.

We report a girl with oro-facio-digital syndrome type I (OFD I) associated with polycystic kidney disease (PKD), which was identified on fetal US and fetal MRI. After birth, the diagnosis of this X-linked dominant disorder, which is lethal in males, was achieved by recognition of facial dysmorphism, lingual hamartomas, postaxial polydactyly, brain malformations, and the existence of her deceased male sibling with similar malformations. Adult PKD is a common feature in heterozygous females with OFD I. However, fetal PKD has been reported only in a lethal homozygous male...

Human burials, dated AD 1100-1500, were examined from the Iron Age site of Simbusenga, located some 35 miles northwest of Victoria Falls in Zambia. Pedal polydactyly was discovered in the fragmentary remains of a young adult of indeterminate sex aged 14-25. The preaxial form of polydactyly is indicated with bilateral involvement of the first metatarsals. There is incomplete hypoplastic duplication of both first metatarsals with broad heads for the metatarsal-phalangeal joints. No digital malformations were found in the other seven individuals with feet and/or hands from the site...

The Museum Vrolik collection of the Department of Anatomy and Embryology of the University of Amsterdam, founded by Gerardus Vrolik (1775-1859) and his son Willem Vrolik (1801-1863), consists of more than 5,000 thousand specimens of human and animal anatomy, embryology, pathology, and congenital anomalies. Recently, the collection of congenital anomalies was recatalogued and redescribed according to contempory syndromological views. The original descriptions, as far as preserved, were compared with the clinical and radiographical findings...

Intracerebral cysts and porencephaly or arachnoid cysts are rarely but are repeatedly reported in orofaciodigital (OFD) syndrome type 1. We report on 2 families in which OFD syndrome type 1 was observed with central nervous system (CNS) malformations and 3 sporadic cases of OFD with CNS defects, most likely representing fresh mutations for OFD 1. In one case, vermis hypoplasia was present; in another, periventricular heterotopiae were noted. We review the literature on CNS anomalies in OFD syndromes and stress the difficulties in genetic counseling and functional prognosis for children of OFD 1 female carriers prenatally diagnosed with a malformation of the brain...

In this report the authors describe a multimalformed female newborn with terminal deletion of the long arm of chromosome 5 (q35.1qter). The multiple congenital anomaly syndrome consisted of a combination of oral, facial and digital anomalies. The present observation indicates that cytogenetic studies are needed in all patients presenting developmental delay and oro-facio-digital anomalies not consistent with the diagnosis of oro-facio-digital syndromes type I and type II.
