Seckel syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder and its characteristic features are marked growth and mental retardation, significant microcephaly and a convex nose. We report a boy with this syndrome who also had severe cardiac anomalies. Although his parents were non-consanguineous, it is suggested that he had autosomal recessive inheritance.
