The Marshall syndrome is an autosomal dominant trait comprising ocular abnormalities, sensorineural hearing loss, craniofacial anomalies, and anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. To our knowledge, only seven additional multi-generational families have been reported since the initial description of the disorder by Marshall in 1958. We present a family in which six members in four generations are affected with apparent Marshall syndrome. We also review and compare similar disorders, such as Stickler, Weissenbacher- Zweimuller, and Wagner syndromes, and conclude that Marshall syndrome is a distinct entity.
