Cases with CSS in Shaw Am J Med Genet (2010) and Ittleman Am J Med Genet (2018),AW aware of one unpublished case and there are earlier clinical cases in literature. Specific mutations in NFIX cause Marshall-Smith, see Schanze Hum Mutat 14. Added by GOSH - Shaw et al (2010) reported Craniosynostosis in 5/38 (13%) of patients with MarshallSmith syndrome but no molecular confirmation. Ittleman et al (2018) reported patient with MarshallSmith syndrome BUT NFIX gene could not be conducted. ; Review on behalf of Tracy Lester/Andrew Wilkie/GOSH
