We report on a baby presenting with ectrodactyly, heart defects, and mild facial dysmorphisms, an association recognized as acro-cardio-facial syndrome (ACFS). Based on the first three observations, the acronym CCGE, cleft palate, cardiac defect, genital anomalies, and ectrodactyly had been proposed to embrace the most consistent features of this syndrome. A subsequent report and the present patient point to an obvious interindividual and intrafamilial variability of this autosomal recessive disorder in which ectrodactyly was the sole characteristic shared by all affected individuals.
