A genetic disorder is a health problem caused by one or more abnormalities in the genomic sequence. A syndrome is a recognisable complex of symptoms and physical findings which indicate a specific condition for which a direct cause is not necessarily understood. Rare diseases/syndromes are the ones which affect a small percentage of the population. Most rare diseases are genetic in origin and thus are present throughout person’s life. Gross estimate of the rare or ultra rare diseases in South East Asian countries is 6-8% of the global population is widely accepted by researches. A head count of every rare/ultra rare disease is not possible as most of these diseases remain remain unreported. One such syndrome has been described here in this report which throws light on it being a deviation from normal yet non debilitating hence is considered a disorder.
