Dr.P.Rajasekhar, Dr.M.Parni Kumar, Dr.P.S.Aalekhya


Abstract: Laurence Moon Bardet Biedl syndrome is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder with variable expressivity and a wide range of clinical variability observed both within and between families. It includes Laurence Moon syndrome with features of Retinitis pigmentosa (Rod-cone dystrophy), mental retardation, hypogenitalism and spastic paresis and Bardet Biedl syndrome as Retinitis pigmentosa, obesity, postaxial polydactyly, learning disabilities and hypogenitalism in males. We report a typical case of Laurence Moon Bardet Biedl syndrome in a female showing all ocular features, most of the general features and a typical family history. There is a typical early onset of blindness in this case.
