A previously undescribed syndrome is reported. Major features include: (1) poorly mineralized calvarium, (2) dysmorphic facies (cleft lip and palate, micrognathia, upturned nares, apparent ocular hypertelorism), and (3) extracranial musculoskeletal anomalies (absence of cervical vertebrae and clavicles, talipes equinovarus, and soft tissue syndactyly). Autosomal recessive inheritance is the most likely mode of transmission. Prenatal diagnosis via ultrasonography was successful in two fetuses at risk.
