We describe a boy with the hypertelorism-hypospadias (BBB) syndrome. His mother and his maternal grandmother showed minor manifestations suggestive of the syndrome. The BBB syndrome is a syndrome of multiple congenital anomalies with mental retardation due a segregating mendelian mutation, either X-linked or autosomal. This paper reviews the literature on the subject and emphasizes the problem of identifying females at high risk of transmitting the condition.
