Author information

Division of Genetics, Departments of Pediatrics, Lok Nayak hospital, New Delhi, India.


The phenotypic description of SHORT syndrome (OMIM- 269880) is expanding since its initial description in 1975. There have been 26 case reports till date but the genetic locus of this syndrome is elusive. Involvement of PITX2 gene initially envisaged is probably is not the only gene involved but has an important role to play in ocular development. Our case did not demonstrate mutation in PITX2 gene. Here, we report a case of SHORT syndrome with two new unreported features deviated nasal septum and cryptorchidism and stress on lipodystrophy, a cardinal feature but not a part of the pneumonic SHORT.
