Acrocallosal syndrome (ACLS) is a rare genetic disorder having characteristic craniofacial abnormalities, distinctive limb malformations, and brain anomalies. Though the typical phenotypic features help the clinician to identify this syndrome at birth, few overlapping features with Joubert syndrome and hydrolethalus syndrome, could confuse the clinical picture. In this report, we describe a neonate with ACLS having additional features not described previously. The inheritance and overlapping clinical features with other disorders are also discussed.
