Four members of one family present a syndrome of telecanthus, lateral displacement of the puncta from the inner canthi, lacrimal excretory obstruction, bulky nose, mask-like facies, torsion dystonia, and mental retardation. The pedigree is compatible with Mendelian autosomal dominant inheritance with variable expression.
