ABSTRACT . Two unrelated cases with clinical and autopsy findings of the Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome are described. Narrowing of the terminal ileum and congenital intestinal aganglionosis was found in both. This is a rare association and the importance of microscopic examination of the intestine in cases of the Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome is emphasized.
