Dundar et al. described patients with Mental Motor Retardation, ocular abnormality, dysmorphic facial appearance, long fingers, and distal arthrogryposis with severely adducted thumbs and clubfeet in Turkish family in 1997. In 2001 family with a distal limb and sternal abnormalities were reported by Dundar et al.This autosomal dominant disease signs which are syndactyly, preaxial polydactyly prominent and upper sternum were established in affected individuals.
Dundar et al. (2001) noticed similarities with F syndrome but significant differences proved otherwise.OMIM 605967 In 2008 Dundar et al. described Turkish family with dominantly-inherited blindness, scoliosis and arachnodactyly.
Two brothers with abnormal neurological development, short height, pylorus stenosis, pectus excavatum, craniosynostosis, large ears, thin upper lip and bilateral cryptorchidism were reported by Dundar et al. in 2012. While investigating these symptoms were concluded that the summary of findings is not seen in known syndromes and because of non-affected parents who are siblings, this is an autosomal recessive inherited new syndrome.
