Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Lowry-Wood syndrome (LWS) is a rare condition characterized by multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (MED), microcephaly, and congenital nystagmus. A variable degree of mental retardation can also be present. It is probably inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. We report a new case of MED and microcephaly, without other additional features, suggesting a mild form of LWS. Molecular analysis of the cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) gene was performed and failed to find mutations.
