The MMEP syndrome is a congenital syndromic form of split-hand/foot malformation (SHFM; see this term). It is characterized by microcephaly, microphthalmia, ectrodactyly of the lower limbs and prognathism. Intellectual deficit has been reported. MMEP syndrome is considered to be a very rare condition, although the exact prevalence remains unknown. The etiology is not completely understood. Disruption of the sorting nexin 3 gene ( SNX3 ; 6q21) has been shown to play a causative role in MMEP, although this was not confirmed in recent studies.
