Abstract

Two brothers and a sister and brother with the de Sanctis-Cacchione syndrome (xeroderma pigmentosum, microcephaly, mental deficiency, dwarfism, and gonadal hypoplasia) are discussed. The syndrome is probably controlled by a single recessive autosomal gene. Porphyrins were not demonstrated in these patients.
