Zori–Stalker–Williams syndrome has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance.

Zori–Stalker–Williams syndrome, also known as pectus excavatum, macrocephaly, short stature and dysplastic nails,[1] is a rare autosomal dominant[2] congenital disorder associated with a range of features such as pectus excavatum, macrocephaly and dysplastic nails, familial short stature, developmental delay and distinctive facies.[3][4] Further signs are known to be associated with this syndrome.[5]

The name originates from the researchers who first defined and noticed the syndrome and its clinical signs.[1]

It is believed that the syndrome is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, though there has been no new research undertaken for this rare disease.[1]
