We report a patient with a unique combination of clinical findings: XY sex reversal, spastic paraplegia, mental retardation, dysmorphism, and infantile-onset olivopontocerebellar hypoplasia. The phenotype of our patient did not coincide with any of the described forms of XY reversal syndromes, hereditary or sporadic spastic paraplegias, or congenital or infantile-onset cerebellar or olivopontocerebellar atrophies or hypoplasias. The disorder of this patient likely represents a genetic condition with pleiotropic effects on brain development and sex determination and adds further evidence for the heterogeneity of spastic paraplegia/infantile olivopontocerebellar hypoplasia syndromes and sex reversal syndromes.
