We describe a boy with multiple congenital anomalies/mental retardation (MCA/MR) syndrome. He has growth retardation, microbrachycephaly, coloboma of the iris, and typical facial anomalies including cleft lip/palate. This phenotype overlaps with that described by Richieri-Costa and Guion-Almeida in three Brazilian brothers. The new patient provides further evidence of the existence of this rare clinical entity.
