    Two sibs with the branchio-oculo-facial syndrome are reported. They both have orbital haemangiomatous cysts, which is a previously unreported feature.

This disorder has been reported showing autosomal dominant transmission so this family could represent either an autosomal recessive form or germline mosaicism for the dominant gene.
