Ohdo syndrome (MIM 249620) is a multiple malformation syndrome characterized by blepharophimosis, ptosis, dental hypoplasia, hearing impairment and intellectual disability. A wide range of dysmorphic features and congenital abnormalities have been described in cases reported as Ohdo and Ohdo-like syndromes. We report a further two cases of Ohdo syndrome, one with mild features and the other more severely affected, illustrating the phenotypic variability of the condition. A review of the literature highlights the severe phenotype associated with distinctive facial features, as seen in Case 2 in this report All cases with the severe phenotype have been sporadic. Subtelomeric FISH studies of all chromosome arms on the two cases showed no abnormality. We propose clinical criteria for the diagnosis of Ohdo syndrome and delineate features of the severe phenotype.
