We describe a female infant with a previously unreported combination of manifestations characterized by aplasia cutis, skull defect, brain heterotopia, mild congenital lymphedema, and intestinal lymphangiectasia. The association of intestinal lymphangiectasia and aplasia cutis, and the association of intestinal lymphangiectasia with brain heterotopia in the lymphedemalymphangiectasia- mental retardation syndrome have been described in single reports. In one family, the association of cortical dysplasia and congenital lymphedema have been related to mutations in the RELN gene.

Abstract

We describe a female infant with a previously unreported combination of manifestations characterized by aplasia cutis, skull defect, brain heterotopia, mild congenital lymphedema, and intestinal lymphangiectasia. The association of intestinal lymphangiectasia and aplasia cutis, and the association of intestinal lymphangiectasia with brain heterotopia in the lymphedemalymphangiectasia- mental retardation syndrome have been described in single reports. In one family, the association of cortical dysplasia and congenital lymphedema have been related to mutations in the RELN gene.
