Abstract

Fraser syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder whose major manifestations are cryptophthalmos, syndactyly and genital abnormalities. These patients also frequently have malformations of the ears, nose and/or larynx. The diagnosis is usually made at birth from the obvious malformations, although occasionally made on prenatal ultrasound. Treatment is dependent on which malformations are present and genetic counseling is indicated. Prognosis is dependent on the severity of renal and laryngeal malformations.
