We describe a girl of Pakistani origin, born to consanguineous parents, with a multiple congenital anomaly (MCA) syndrome. This is the second report confirming an apparently new autosomal recessive syndrome reported earlier by van den Ende et al in 1992. The hallmarks of this MCA syndrome include characteristic facies with blepharophimosis, narrow, beaked nose, hypoplastic maxilla with or without cleft palate and everted lower lip, arachnodactyly, self-limiting congenital joint contractures, peculiar skeletal abnormalities, and normal growth and development. Further clinical and radiological delineation of the syndrome in this report suggests that the term “Marden-Walker-like syndrome without psychomotor retardation”, used in the first report to describe this condition, does not accurately reflect its clinical picture. The overall prognosis in this syndrome seems good.
