Kabuki syndrome

Common Name(s)

Kabuki syndrome, Kabuki make-up syndrome

Kabuki syndrome is a condition, present at birth, which affects many parts of the body. Affected individuals have facial features that resemble the make-up worn by actors of Kabuki, a Japanese theatrical form. Facial characteristics of Kabuki syndrome may include long eye openings that slant upwards, arched eyebrows, prominent ears, and corners of the mouth that turn downwards. This syndrome typically causes mild to moderate intellectual disability as well as problems involving the heart, skeleton, teeth, and immune system. Kabuki syndrome is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. Most causes are caused by mutations in the MLL2 gene.
