Certain facial features consisting of a disproportion between the size of the skull and face with macrocephaly, microstomia, microretrognatia, lengthened filtrum with narrow nostrils and hypertelorism were described in 1938 by Freeman and Sheldon, with the name of dystrophy craniocarpotarsal. These characteristics were also observed later by Burian coining later the name of whistling face syndrome, a disorder with autosomal dominant pattern. A case of a male patient 20 days old, who was referred to Children’s Hospital Morelos, whose findings of facial and limb both above and below, were characteristic for establishing the diagnosis.

Key words: Cranial and carpotarsal dystrophy, wheezing facies syndrome, fingers cross mill.
