The Leopard syndrome is a complex of multisystemic congenital abnormalities characterised by lentiginosis, electrocardiographic conduction abnormalities, ocular hypertelorism, pulmonary stenosis, abnormalities of genitalia, retardation of growth and deafness (sensorineural). Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, though not included in the mnemonic, is often associated. Although the Leopard syndrome is rare, it is important to recognise it since it can be associated with serious cardiac disease. It is advisable to follow up patients with Leopard syndrome for new onset of cardiac abnormalities and to monitor the progression of existing cardiac disease. We present a case report and review of the literature of this syndrome.
