Synpolydactyly (SPD) is an autosomal dominant congenital limb disorder due to mutations in HOXD13. It is a phenotypically heterogeneous condition characterized by syndactyly of the third finger (F3), fourth finger (F4) and/or fourth toe (T4), and fifth toe (T5) with variably associated polydactyly. We report on a mother and fetus with SPD. The mother has a novel mutation (c.708_708delC) in the HOXD13 gene that was also seen in the fetus. However, the fetus had congenital omphalocele in addition to SPD that is an association not reported to date. A chromosomal microarray in the fetus was normal.We report a novel mutation in HOXD13 and document co-occurrence of an omphalocele and SPD in a fetus.
