Fraser syndrome

An autosomal recessive genetic disease, characterized by developmental defects including underdevelopment of the eyes (crytophthalmos) and the genitals (micropenis, cryptorchidism or clitoromegaly). Congenital malformations of the nose, ears,larynx, and renal system as well as mental retardation are manifest occasionally. The Fraser syndrom is also known as: Meyer-Schwickerath's syndrome, Fraser-Fran├žois syndrome, or Ullrich-Feichtiger syndrome.

The genetic background of this disease has been linked to a gene called FRAS1, which seems to be involved in skin epithelial morphogenesis during early development.
