Kabuki syndrome is a rare congenital disorder, meaning that children are born with the condition. Children with Kabuki syndrome usually have distinctive facial features and mild to moderate mental impairment.

  • Typical facial features include arched eyebrows, elongated and wide-set eyes, thick eyelashes, flat nasal tip and large or cupped ears
  • Estimated to occur in 1 out of every 32,000 births
  • Affects males and females equally
  • Believed to be under-diagnosed because there is no diagnostic test and many doctors are unfamiliar with the disorder.
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
