Abstract

Congenital Nasal Pyriform Aperture Stenosis (CNPAS) is a rare congenital malformation caused by overgrowth of the maxillary bone. We report on two patients, brothers born 3 and 1½ years apart, both presented at birth with radiographically diagnosed CNPAS. Both siblings also were born with ocular albinism, which is known to have X-linked inheritance. Subsequent genetic testing demonstrated a 97 kb deletion in the p arm of the X chromosome in both siblings and their mother. This deletion encompasses a gene known to cause ocular albinism (GPR143), as well as partial deletion of two other genes, TBL1X and SHROOM2. This is the first reported case of CNPAS in siblings, both males, sharing a maternally inherited Xp22.2 deletion.
