Cryptophthalmos Syndrome is a rare congenital disease charaterized by unilateral or bilateral absence of the palphbral fissure, other dyscephaly, partial cutaneous syndactyly and malformation of the genitalia. It is presumably a nonuniform syndrome and its etiology is not certain. But, a type transmitted by autosomal recessive inheritance may be considered certain. We experienced a characteristic case of cryptophthalmos syndrome in newborn female infant who died soon after birth.
