 en Case Report - Kenny-Caffey syndrome
Agarwal Indira, Danda Sumita, Scott JuliusXavier, Kumar TSathish, Mammen Thomas


Kenny-Caffey syndrome is a rare hereditary skeletal syndrome characterized by dysmorphic features, severe growth retardation, classical radiological changes and hypocalcemia with hypoparathyroidism at an early age. We report an 8-month-old girl child with Kenny-Caffey syndrome who had most of the features of the syndrome. Any child with hypocalcemia who has typical facial features should raise a suspicion of this syndrome.
