A form of Galloway-Mowat syndrome, a severe renal-neurological disease characterized by early-onset nephrotic syndrome associated with microcephaly, central nervous system abnormalities, developmental delays, and a propensity for seizures. Brain anomalies include gyration defects ranging from lissencephaly to pachygyria and polymicrogyria, and cerebellar hypoplasia. Most patients show facial dysmorphism characterized by a small, narrow forehead, large/floppy ears, deep-set eyes, hypertelorism and micrognathia. Additional variable features are visual impairment and arachnodactyly. Most patients die in early childhood.
