Zimmermann-Laband syndrome is a very rare disorder characterized by gingival fibromatosis, abnormalities of soft cartilages of the nose and/or ears, hypoplastic or absent nails and terminal phalanges, joint hypermobility, hypatoslenomegaly, mild hirsutism and learning difficulties. Early presentation of Zimmermann-Laband syndrome in a newborn has rarely been described. This paper describes a newborn patient with Zimmermann-Laband syndrome.
