We consider fermion masses and mixings in a renormalizable SUSY SO(10) GUT with Yukawa couplings of scalar fields in the representation . We investigate a scenario defined by the following assumptions. (i) We have a single large scale in the theory, the GUT scale. (ii) The small neutrino masses are generated by the type I seesaw mechanism with negligible type II contributions. (iii) We assume a suitable form of spontaneous CP breaking that induces hermitian mass matrices for all fermion mass terms of the Dirac type. Our assumptions define an 18-parameter scenario for the fermion mass matrices for 18 experimentally known observables. Performing a numerical analysis, we find excellent fits to all observables in the case of both the normal and inverted neutrino mass spectrum.
