Hallermann-Streiff syndrome is a rare disease; approximately 150 cases have been reported in the world literature. The syndrome consists of proportionate nanism; hypotrichosis; atrophy and extreme thinness of skin, particulary over the facial area; an usual "bird-like" face with mandibular hypoplasia; a prominent thin, pointed nose; congenital cataracts; and severe dental abnormalities. We report a case of Hallermann-Streiff syndrome in premature who showed intrauterine growth retardation with proportionate nanism, brachycephaly, a beaked nose, "bird like" face, hypoplasia of the mandible, microphthalmia, congenital cataract, neonatal teeth, and widening of sagittal suture were all found on our patient.
