acrocephalopolysyndactyly
A group of congenital syndromes characterized by abnormal skull shape due to craniosynostosis, brachydactyly, syndactyly, and preaxial polydactyly of hands and/or feet; mental retardation is a variable feature. There are several autosomal recessive syndromes [MIM*201000, MIM*201020, and MIM*272350] and one autosomal dominant form [MIM*101600].
