Abstract

The occurrence of chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia, pigmentary retinal dystrophy and cardiac disturbances associated with arachnodactily, sternal deformity, high arched palate and severe myopia is reported. A pedigree analysis of this Jewish-Iranian family strongly suggests that the condition is inherited as autosomal recessive trait. The terminology of the condition and the spectrum of its variable phenotypic expression is described.
