Reynolds-Neri-Herrmann syndrome (James F. Reynolds)
A dysmorphy syndrome of unknown aetiology marked by facial anomalies, heart defects, macrocephaly, skin changes and developmental retardation.
First description probably by Cantu et al in 1982. In 1986, Reynolds et al described 4 males and 4 females, each from a different family, with a previously undefined multiple congenital anomalies/mental retardation syndrome that they designated the cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome.
