Answer

Dubowitz syndrome is characterized by intrauterine growth retardation, extremely short stature, and wizened facial appearance. Patients also have microcephaly and mild developmental delay. Dubowitz syndrome is also associated with eczema, immune deficiency, and aplastic anemia. Malignancy is more common with this disorder, particularly lymphoma and neuroblastoma. No single gene has been implicated as responsible for this syndrome. [36]
