Hallermann-Streiff Syndrome is a considerably rare disorder that is principally diagnosed by multiple congenital anomalies observed in the head and neck region. It was first identified in 1948 by Hallermann and then in 1950 by Streiff. The most frequently encountered clinical characteristics of the syndrome are bird-like facial appearance, hypoplastic mandible and maxilla, eye and teeth anomalies, skin atrophy, particularly on the nose, and short stature. Because of the rarity of this syndrome, this paper presents a neonate with Hallermann-Streiff Syndrome together with a description of the newborns clinical characteristics.
