Abstract

We report a growth retarded, male child with exomphalos, bilateral direct inguinal hernias, unilateral renal agenesis, congenital heart defect, costovertebral dysplasia, microcephaly, ventricular septal defect, and paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia associated with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. The natural history of that syndrome is poorly understood and provisional suggestion of a new syndrome will depend on further similar observations.
