Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, New York Medical College, Valhalla.


The wrinkly skin syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by wrinkling of the skin of the dorsum of the hands and feet, decreased elastic recoil of the skin, an increased number of palmar and plantar creases, multiple musculoskeletal abnormalities, microcephaly, and mental retardation. Our patient is characteristic of the syndrome as previously described, and confirms the presence of mental retardation and microcephaly as component manifestations, with the additional findings of connective tissue abnormalities evidenced by an atrial septal aneurysm.
