Familial patent ductus arteriosus: a further case of CHAR syndrome.

Author information

  • 1Department of Clinical Genetics, St. Mary's Hospital, Manchester, United Kingdom.


We report on a family with patent ductus arteriosus, a distinctive facial appearance with eyebrow flare, a short nose and "duck-bill lips," polydactyly, and fifth finger clinodactyly. The facial traits were consistent with CHAR syndrome. We provide further evidence for evolution of the phenotype with age and describe the previously unreported finding of interstitial polydactyly in this syndrome.
