Cornelia De Lange syndrome is a relatively uncommon, multiple congenital anomaly / mental retardation disorder of unknown etiology. Its incidence has been reported to vary from 1 : 30,000 to 1 : 50,000 of live births, without any known racial predilection. However, it has been considered to be due to a new dominant mutation. Main clinical features of this syndrome include growth retardation, developmental delay, hirsutism, structural limb abnormalities, mental retardation and facial growth discrepancies. Main causes of death in such patients include pneumonia along with cardiac, respiratory and GI abnormalities.
