Abstract: Hydrolethalus syndrome is a severe lethal disorder most commonly found in Finland. We present a lethal case of complex congenital malformation in a Romanian family who showed multiple signs described in hydrolethalus syndrome. Our case presented the specific characteristics: macrocephaly, midline cleft-lip, cleft palate, polydactyly of both hands and feet but without occipitoschisis, considered as the pathognomonic sign of the syndrome. Sequencing analysis of HYLS1 did not identify the point mutation present in the Finnish cases or other mutations in this gene.
