Robinow syndrome

Robinow syndrome is a rare heterogeneous genetic disorder with at least two distinct forms.

The syndrome can affect several systems, including:

Both autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive forms exist.

The autosomal recessive form of the disorder has been linked to the ROR2 gene on position 9 of the long arm of chromosome 9.

It was first described in 1969 by the geneticist Meinhard Robinow 2 (and his colleagues).
