C Syndrome

Common Name(s)

C Syndrome

The C syndrome, also known as Opitz trigonocephaly syndrome, is a malformation syndrome characterized by trigonocephaly, severe mental retardation, hypotonia, variable cardiac defects, redundant skin, and dysmorphic facial features, including upslanted palpebral fissures, epicanthal folds, depressed nasal bridge, and low-set, posteriorly rotated ears (summary by {11:Kaname et al., 2007}). C syndrome shows phenotypic overlap with Bohring-Opitz syndrome, or C-like syndrome ({605039}), a disorder with more severe features than C syndrome, caused by heterozygous mutation in the ASXL1 gene ({612990}) on chromosome 20q11.
