We report on an Italian patient affected by severe lymphedema of lower limbs, genitalia and face, intestinal lymphangiectasia, seizures, and moderate mental retardation. He has a flat face, flat nasal bridge, and hypertelorism. We propose that he presents with a severe form of Hennekam syndrome. © 2002 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
