Abstract

Kabuki's syndrome (KS), or Niikawa -Kuroki's syndrome, is a sporadic multiple congenital anomaly/mental retardation syndrome of unknown etiology. The clinical findings include a peculiar facial dysmorphism (oriental look), developmental delay, growth impairment, hypotonia, scoliosis, persistent fetal fingertip pads, overweight or obesity, hypodontia, heart defects, cleft palate and a variety of other structural defects. KS can present with a wide phenotypical and clinical spectrum that often makes diagnosis difficult.
