Melnick-Needles syndrome is a rare connective tissue disorder producing somatic abnormalities with characteristic radiographic features. There are less than 35 documented cases reported to date. We present four new cases of Melnick-Needles Syndrome, one of which is the first reported Asian-ancestry patient. Two girls are daughters of one of Needle's original patients from family #2. Two others, from unrelated non-affected families, probably represent new mutations. All have characteristic radiographic features of the disorder.
