Multiple congenital joint dislocation associated with characteristic flat facies, depressed nasal bridge and club foot deformity was first described in 6 sporadic cases by Larsen et al. in 1950. Curiously, there was no further case report till 1971 when Latta and associates (1971) reported another case. Later, steel and Kohl (1972) reported Larsen’s syndrome in 3 siblings. Robertson et al. (1975) described 3 unrelated cases from Australia. Larsen’s syndrome is very rare, however, it is likely that many cases go unrecognized because of non-familiarity with this entity. Because of the rarity of case reports and probable lack of the full spectrum of variability, we report a case of Larsen’s syndrome having additional features not reported earlier.
