Lehman syndrome

Common Name(s)

Lehman syndrome

Lateral meningocele syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by distinctive facial features, hyperextensibility, hypotonia, and characteristic lateral meningoceles, which can result in neurologic complications such as bladder dysfunction and neuropathy. Dysmorphic features include dolichocephaly, hypertelorism, ptosis, microretrognathia, high-arched palate, long, flat philtrum, and low-set ears. Multiple additional variable features may also be observed, including cryptorchidism, vertebral anomalies, and connective tissue abnormalities. Early motor development is delayed, but cognition is usually normal (summary by {5:Gripp et al., 2015}).
