  • Neonatal phenotype in Kabuki syndrome AMERICAN JOURNAL OF MEDICAL GENETICS PART A Vaux, K. K., Hudgins, L., Bird, L. M., Roeder, E., Curry, C. J., Jones, M., Jones, K. L. 2005; 132A (3): 244-247


    The Kabuki syndrome is a well-established pattern of human malformation with readily recognizable features, however the diagnosis is rarely made in the newborn period. The purpose of this study was to determine if there exists a neonatal phenotype for this disorder. We ascertained 16 infants evaluated in the first 28 days of life by a dysmorphologist who subsequently received the diagnosis of Kabuki syndrome. The average age of initial evaluation was 8 days and the average age of diagnosis was 2 years 6 months. Based on these findings, it is suggested that the distinctive clinical phenotype seen in older patients is also evident in the newborn period.
