Goodman syndrome is a type of acrocephalopolysyndactyly (often considered type IV). It is an extremely rare genetic disorder characterized by marked malformations of the head and face, abnormalities of the hands and feet, and congenital heart disease. The syndrome is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Some consider this to be a variation of acrocephalopolysyndactyly type II - Carpenter syndrome.
