Abstract

Dandy-Walker syndrome in monozygotic twins is reported. The twins reported, presented with delayed development, big head and dysmorphic features. In addition, there were significant cafe-au-lait spots on the trunk and other minor features consistent with the diagnosis of neurofibromatosis. To the best of our knowledge, Dandy-Walker syndrome in combination with neurofibromatosis in monozygotic twins has not been previously reported.
