Abstract

A Sephardi Jewish family is reported in which the two brothers had mental retardation, lower limb spasticity and bilateral clasped thumbs anomaly. This X‐linked recessive disorder has only been reported twice. We believe this syndrome comprises a distinct entity among the X‐linked mental retardation syndromes.
