Abstract: Hypoglossia-hypodactyly syndrome is characterised by small tongue associated with limb deficiency. It is an extremely rare condition with around 30 cases reported in world literature. We report a case of hypoglossia-hypodactyly syndrome that in addition to features already described also had supernumerary nipples, microcephaly and micropenis with cryptorchidism. Hypodactyly was symmetrical in all four limbs. These features have not been reported previously.
