Abstract

We report two 71-year-old female monozygotic twins presenting with advanced hyperostosis frontalis interna, obesity, shortness and cognitive impairment. They both have suffered from generalized seizures since their early adulthood. Moreover, the patients showed some additional conditions only occurring in one individual or the other such as migraine, marked recurrent depressive disorder or polyarthrosis. The symptoms common to both twins appear to correspond to the Morgagni-Stewart-Morel syndrome and indicate a genetic basis of this disorder as these features occur in genetically identical patients.
