Feingold syndrome: report of a new family and review.

Feingold syndrome (or oculodigitoesophagoduodenal syndrome; Microcephaly, Mesobrachyphalangy, Tracheo-esophageal fistula syndrome) is a dominantly inherited combination of hand and foot abnormalities, microcephaly, esophageal/duodenal atresia, short palpebral fissures and learning disabilities, first reported in 1975 ( MIM 164280). We report on the seventh family with Feingold syndrome. The propositus is a male infant with esophageal and duodenal atresia, brachymesophalangy of the fifth fingers, bilateral syndactyly of toes 4-5 (and 2-3), relative microcephaly, and facial anomalies. His mother also has microcephaly, similar facial appearance, short fifth fingers with single flexion crease, syndactyly of toes 4-5, and learning disabilities. The maternal sister, brother, and grandmother of the propositus have the same phenotype. The 7 families with Feingold syndrome are reviewed. Intestinal (esophageal/duodenal) atresia/obstruction occurs in approximately 1/3 of the patients with Feingold syndrome.[1]
