We are reporting here, a case of the Lenz syndrome in a neonate who was brought to the Paediatric OPD, Kasturba Medical Col-lege Hospital, Attavar, Mangalore India, with the complaints of poor suckling since birth and abnormal facial features. Altogether, the characteristic congenital abnormal findings in Lenz syndrome, which comprise of microophthalmia, ear anomalies, microcephaly, skeletal and digital deformities, and urogenital malformations were observed, with an exception of a dental anomaly. Dental abnor-malities were not pertinent, as the patient was a neonate.
