          Abstract

          We report on the first 4 cases (3 girls and one boy belonging to 4 families) of Sanjad-Sakati syndrome from Sudan. They presented within the first 2 months of life with repeated hypocalcaemic convulsions, severe growth retardation and dysmorphic features. They all had low parathyroid hormone levels. All patients came from consanguineous families who are of Arab descent, and 8 of their siblings had similar condition and died without being diagnosed.
