At first, all of the individuals who were reported with features suggestive of Fine–Lubinsky syndrome were the only affected individuals in their families. Although a variety of inheritance patterns could be proposed for this disorder, the identification of a brother and sister with unaffected parents suggests a possible autosomal recessive inheritance pattern with a 25% recurrence risk to future siblings. While autosomal dominant inheritance with germ-line mosaicism in a parent cannot be excluded in this case, it is recommended that parents of children with Fine–Lubinsky syndrome be aware of the recurrence risk associated with possible autosomal recessive inheritance.
