Feingold syndromeAn extremely rare (less than 100 cases in the world literature) autosomal dominant condition (OMIM:164280) characterised by microcephaly, malformation of digits (e.g., clinodactyly, syndactyly), short palpebral fissures, oesophageal and duodenal atresias, and variable learning disability or mental retardation.
Feingold syndrome is caused by a mutation of MYCN, a gene on chromosome 2p24.3 that encodes a DNA binding transcription factor.
