Journal Title: Medpulse International Journal of Pediatrics - Year 2019, Vol 9, Issue 3

Abstract

Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl (LMBB) syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by structural and functional abnormalities of different organ and tissues. In 1920 Bardet described a female patient of 4 years old with the rodcone dystrophy, marked central obesity, polydactyly and mental retardation. Biedl studied two cases in 1992 and highlighted the complete scenario of clinical signs of LMBB syndrome which could be conceivable including skull abnormalities, anal atresia and gastrointestinal conflicts.
