- Taybi's syndrome
A syndrome of peculiar facies and osseous defect.
Jablonski: Orofacial anomalies consist of hypertelorism, antimongoloid palpebral slant, low-set ears, cleft palate, retrognathia, promient forehead, and Robin's anomaly. Bone defects include faulty ossification of the cranial vault, broad sutures and fontanels, sinous ribs, long and thin clavicles, flat vertebrae, abnormal bowing and hyperostosis of the long bones, and faulty ossification of the bones of hands and feet with fanned out toes and shortening of the hand bones. Appears to be transmitted as an X-linked trait and is usually lethal within a few weeks.
