Marinesco-Sjögren syndromeAn autosomal recessive condition (OMIM:248800) characterised by congenital cataracts, cerebellar ataxia, progressive muscle weakness due to myopathy with marked muscle replacement by fat and connective tissue, and delayed psychomotor development; variably accompanied by short stature, hypergonadotrophic hypogonadism, and skeletal deformities due to muscle weakness.
