Fibrotic eye muscles, Axenfeld anomaly, flat face, and mild developmental retardation: a new example of the Chitty syndrome



Fibrotic eye muscles, Axenfeld anomaly, flat face, and mild developmental retardation: a new example of the Chitty syndrome



American Journal of Medical Genetics 65(3): 205-208



We have studied a girl with fibrotic extrinsic eye muscles, Axenfeld anomaly, unusual facial appearance, mild hydrocephaly, and neurodevelopmental delay. Her condition is similar to the one described recently in members of a single family by Chitty et al. [1991, Am J Med Genet 40:417-420]. We suggest that she represents a second example of what may be called the Chitty syndrome.
