Abstract

The case history of a set of twins with Rett syndrome is presented. The twins test as monozygotic by both blood groups and HLA titers. In a previous generation, the family had three females who died of an unknown degenerative disease on the paternal side of this family. The discussion includes a hypothesis about female genetic disease occurring in a recessive pattern on the X chromosome.
