Genetics of the Meckel Syndrome (Dysencephalia Splanchnocystica)
Hsia, Y. E.; And Others
Pediatrics, 48, 2, 237-47, Aug 71
Reported are seven cases in two families of the Meckel syndrome, whose key features are occipital encephalocele, cleft lip and palate, polydactyly, and polycystic kidneys. Evidence supports the hypothesis that the syndrome is a recessively inherited condition, determined by homozygous expression of a single autosomal gene. (Author/KW)
