Abstract

We report on 4 patients with the Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome who were evaluated in an institute for the mentally retarded. The estimated prevalence of the syndrome in this population was 1.3%, much above previous estimates in comparable populations. The presence of broad thumbs and/or halluces was ascertained in relatives of the probands, and the etiology of the syndrome is discussed in the light of these findings.
