We report on a 4-year-old girl with blepharophimosis, a typical facial gestalt and skeletal abnormalities seen in the blepharofacioskeletal syndrome (BFSS). A comparative review with previous cases provides further evidence that BFSS and Schilbach-Rott syndrome (SRS) are the same condition.
A mother and daughter are described with similar facial and skeletal manifestations. The syndrome consists of blepharophimosis, malar hypoplasia, small thin lips, and long tapering fingers. The facial phenotype changes with age. Autosomal dominant inheritance is suggested.
