Abstract

Facial dysmorphism associated with distinctive spine abnormalities has been encountered in a girl and her mother. A three-dimensional reformatted spinal computed tomography scan showed a combination of distinctive abnormalities such as failure of anterior formation of the vertebral bodies, malsegmentation, and Forestier disease. Mutations were not found in the GDF6 gene. We describe a hitherto undescribed autosomal dominant entity.
