A severely mentally handicapped Caucasian male with cataracts, deafness, distal muscle wasting and skeletal abnormalities, including calcification of the pinnae, is described. The findings in this patient strongly resemble those in a male described in 1982 by Primrose, and it suggested that this unusual pattern of abnormalities constitutes a discrete entity, which we propose should be known as 'Primrose syndrome'.
