Abstract

This report concerns two sibs from a consanguineous Sudanese family with microgastria-limb reduction defect associated with hydrocephalus and agenesis of corpus callosum. We suggest that these cases together with other previously reported cases of central nervous system (CNS) anomalies associated with microgastria-limb reduction defect could represent an autosomal recessive syndrome differing from the classical microgastria-limb reduction defect by its severity, presence of CNS-anomalies and its pattern of inheritance.
