    A 4-day-old Caucasian male presented with midline defects of the skull and face and extensive skeletal malformations.

Confirmation of the cytogenetic interpretation was obtained from the assay of the enzyme galactose-1-P uridyl transferase, the locus for which is on 9p, which showed twice the normal activity.
