Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl Syndrome with Coexisting Abdominal Distension and Positive Fluid Thrill: A Rare Manifestation Reported in Karachi, Pakistan.Cureus 2019; 11(6):e4885C
Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl syndrome (LMBBS) is a rare autosomal recessive (AR) disorder. It is characterized predominantly by hypogonadism, polydactyly, retinitis pigmentosa, obesity, and mental retardation. Herein, we present a classic case of LMBBS with generalized body edema, abdominal distension, and positive fluid thrill in a 32-year-old male. LMBBS patients are friendly with a happy predisposition, proper management, and regular examinations should be done in order to maintain healthy organ function and to avoid an early death. Renal failure is the most common cause of mortality in LMBBS patients.
