Long columella with cleft lip/palate; eye, heart, and
intestinal anomalies, and mental retardation.
First reported in 1991 (two cases).
The presence of multiple congenital anomalies with coloboma of the iris, cardiac defects (atrial and/or
and ventricular septal defects, tetralogy of Fallot), mental retardation, urogenital and ear abnormalities, and
facial cleft will point to the diagnosis. Recurrent episodes of bowel obstruction. Abnormal EEG.
Severe mental retardation, congenital heart
defect, cleft lip/palate, malrotation of intestines, displaced
kidneys, flat-tipped, bulbous nose, long columella, microphthalmia, iris
Echocardiography to assess cardiac
function. Esophageal dysfunction may lead to recurrent aspiration pneumonia.
As determined by cardiac function. The
potential for pulmonary aspiration should be considered
Patient cooperation may be limited secondary to mental retardation. Sedative and/or
anxiolytic premedication and presence of the primary caregiver for induction of anesthesia
may be helpful.
Subacute bacterial endocarditis prophylaxis may be indicated.
