Abstract: Schinzel-Giedion syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disorder comprising postnatal growth failure, profound developmental delay, seizures, facial dysmorphisms, genitourinary, skeletal, neurological, and cardiac defects. It was recently revealed that Schinzel-Giedion syndrome is caused by de novo mutations in SETBP1, but there are few reports of this syndrome with molecular confirmation. We describe two unrelated Brazilian patients with Schinzel-Giedion syndrome, one of them carrying a novel mutation. We also present a review of clinical manifestations of the syndrome, comparing our cases to patients reported in literature emphasizing the importance of the facial gestalt associated with neurological involvement for diagnostic suspicion of this syndrome.
