What is the Diagnosis?

GTK Mok, YWY Chu, YT Tan, BHY Chung

Our patient was born at 32 weeks of gestation with an antenatal history of oligohydramnios. His parents are non-consanguineous and of Chinese origin. His father had left retinal detachment at 8 years old; otherwise his family history was unremarkable. His birth weight was 1.895 kg. Soon after birth, he was found to have episodes of oxygen desaturation. Examination reveals a small jaw and cleft palate, requiring Continuous Positive Airway Pressure support in Special Care Baby Unit for a few weeks and subsequently a surgical repair of the cleft palate at 20 months of age. He developed high myopia (-5.25 dioptre in both eyes) in early childhood and his hearing was normal. His height was 50th-75th percentile at 4 years of age. Photographs taken at various ages are shown in Figure 1.
