• Congenital laryngeal web, congenital heart disease, and low stature occurred in a 23-year-old woman. The patient was a member of a family in which several members were similarly affected. This triad of congenital anomalies is a syndrome that has not been previously reported. The pattern of inheritance of this syndrome is compatible with an autosomal dominant gene.
