Summary

Two large Brazilian families with 34 males and 32 females presenting Christ-Siemens-Touraine syndrome are reported. As “unusual” features, one kindred presented two very severely affected girls, nine affected males with a normal nose, and a very heterogeneous trichodysplasia among both males and females; oligohydramnios was verified in the pregnancies of carriers from both kindreds. Carrier detection was possible in 0.73–0.04 of all the cases.
