An infant boy is described whose clinical findings include congenital ascites, hepatosplenomegaly, postnatal growth failure, dysostosis multiplex, delayed development, pericardial effusion, and the nephrotic syndrome. Death occurred before he reached 2 years of age. Evidence indicates that these abnormalities resulted from an autosomal recessive inherited deficiency of neuraminidase.
