An autosomal recessive disorder of cholesterol metabolism. It is caused by a deficiency of 7-dehydrocholesterol reductase, the enzyme that converts 7-dehydrocholesterol to cholesterol, leading to an abnormally low plasma cholesterol. This syndrome is characterized by multiple congenital abnormalities, growth deficiency, and intellectual disability.
