    Young and Simpson in 1987 and Fryns and Moerman in 1988 each reported a case of a new unknown syndrome with hypothyroidism, severe global retardation, and abnormal facies, including microcephaly, blepharophimosis, bulbous nose, thin upper lip, low set ears, and micrognathia. A male infant with a similar pattern of malformations and postaxial polydactyly is reported here.
