Matthew-Wood syndrome (MWS), also termed Microphthalmia, syndrome 9 (MCOPS9, MIM 601186), Spear syndrome, or pulmonary hypoplasia, diaphragmatic hernia, anophthalmia and cardiac defects syndrome (PDAC syndrome), is an autosomal recessive disorder characterised by ocular, respiratory and cardiac abnormalities. Mutations in retinoic acid 6 gene (STRA6) have been reported in clinically diagnosed patients with MWS. Here we presented a case with MWS, who has characteristic findings of the syndrome as well as dextrocardia as an undescribed feature, and bilateral streak gonads which was described only in one patient previously. Molecular analysis showed a homozygous exonic missense mutation in the STRA6 gene.
