Feingold syndrome (FS), also known as oculo-digito-esophageal-duodenal (ODED) syndrome, is a rare inherited malformation syndrome characterized by microcephaly, short stature and numerous digital anomalies and is comprised of two subtypes: FS type 1 (FS1) and FS type 2 (FS2) (see these terms). FS1 is by far the most common form while FS2 has only been reported in 3 patients and has the same clinical characteristics as FS1, apart from the absence of gastrointestinal atresia and short palpebral fissures.

Because there is no official method for tracking rare conditions like Feingold syndrome, the actual number of people with this syndrome is not known. However a general sense of the rarity can sometimes be achieved by searching the medical literature for case reports and articles. Case reports provide information on individual or groups of cases. However, not every person who is diagnosed with a rare condition will have an article regarding their diagnosis published. Also, some people with rare conditions are never diagnosed.
You may find Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) and PubMed.gov to be helpful resources as you seek to stay abreast of new reports of Feingold syndrome. OMIM is an online catalog of genetic disorders. Each entry summarizes the information that has been published in medical journals. Click here to view the OMIM page on Feingold syndrome.
