Main clinical features
  • microcephaly variably associated with congenital lymphedema and/or chorioretinopathy
  • microcephaly, ranging from mild to severe, is the critical component of both syndromes and is often associated with mild to moderate developmental delay and a characteristic facial phenotype
  • chorioretinopathy constitutes the most common eye abnormality but also retinal folds, microphthalmia, and myopic and hypermetropic astigmatism
  • lymphedema is congenital and typically confined to the dorsa of the feet
  • Genetic determination autosomal dominant
