Abstract

We present a child with cardio-facio-cutaneous (CFC) syndrome with inadequate weight gain due to inadequate food intake. After correction of hyperemesis due to intestinal malrotation, she continued to fail to feed due to poor suck reflex. A review documented digestive system findings in 26 of 57 reported patients with CFC syndrome. Thus, digestive system dysfunction and malformation may represent an additional manifestation of the CFC syndrome.
