The authors report on a child with Setleis syndrome (OMIM 227260). She is born to a consanguineous couple with bitemporal scar like defects resembling forceps marks. She had other classical features resembling autosomal recessive Setleis syndrome. The authors identified a novel homozygous deletion of a single nucleotide (c.91delC) in TWIST2 gene leading to the premature truncation of protein (p.R31GfsX71).Umbilical hernia and genital anomalies are being reported for the first time with this condition. This is the fourth mutation proven family of Setleis syndrome.
