Abstract
We report on pathologic examination of three autopsied newborns with Jarcho -Levin syndrome. The most important abnormalities noted were multiple extra skeletical defects such as cardiovascular, urogenital, respiratory, and cen tral nervous system malformations. These cases add new information to the m ultiple vertebral segmentation defects found in this syndrome.
