The most recent classification of the oral-facial-digital syndromes (OFDS) includes 7 types distinguishable by different clinical signs. We describe 2 brothers presenting oral, facial, and digital anomalies and an additional manifestation consisting of specific retinal abnormalities, i.e., retinochoroidal lacunae of colobomatous origin. Our patients may be affected with a new type of OFDS, i.e., OFDS type VIII, characterized by eye abnormalities in addition to other manifestations that partially overlap with those of OFDS type II. Given that there are 2 affected brothers, we cannot distinguish between autosomal and X-linked recessive inheritance.

Abstract

The most recent classification of the oral-facial-digital syndromes (OFDS) includes 7 types distinguishable by different clinical signs. We describe 2 brothers presenting oral, facial, and digital anomalies and an additional manifestation consisting of specific retinal abnormalities, i.e., retinochoroidal lacunae of colobomatous origin. Our patients may be affected with a new type of OFDS, i.e., OFDS type VIII, characterized by eye abnormalities in addition to other manifestations that partially overlap with those of OFDS type II. Given that there are 2 affected brothers, we cannot distinguish between autosomal and X-linked recessive inheritance.
