To the editor: Physicians and dentists, especially those working in birth defect and genetic counseling clinics, repeatedly encounter patients with abnormal findings that seem to constitute a syndrome but are not documented in the medical literature and therefore cannot be classified. Journals are reluctant to publish a single case report but will accept papers that clearly delineate a new syndrome. A new journal, which stems from the Syndrome Identification and Consultation Service and is sponsored by the National Foundation-March of Dimes, welcomes case reports of patients with potential syndromes. By calling attention to these unusual cases, readers will be encouraged
