A familial syndrome of mental and somatic retardation with Peters' anomaly (defect of the Descemet membrane and deep stromal layers of the cornea), corneal clouding, hypoplastic facies, subvalvular aortic stenosis, and skeletal abnormalities. The syndrome was originally reported in male and female children of consanguineous parents. Inheritance is autosomal recessive.
