CHARGE syndrome is an autosomal dominant condition involving many organ systems. The four major common characteristics of CHARGE syndrome are coloboma of the eye, choanal atresia or stenosis, cranial nerve dysfunction or anomaly and characteristic CHARGE ear with inner, middle and outer ear malformations. Minor characteristics are congenital heart defects, hypoplastic genitals, cleft palate and/or lip and a characteristic CHARGE face and hand. Patients with CHARGE syndrome can vary in which of the features they have and the degree of severity of each feature.
