Multiple lentigines (LEOPARD) syndrome is an inherited autosomal dominant disorder which presents with multiple lentigines and wide range of multisystem developmental defects. We here report a case of 6 year old male child, who presented with multiple scattered brownish pigmented lesions predominantly over trunk. Patient was deaf and mute since birth. Mother and elder sister had similar cutaneous lesions over body but no systemic complaints. On systemic examination, mild growth retardation was present. Hypertelorism was observed. On genital palpation it was found that the testes were very well in the sac but they were retractile. ECG showed conduction abnormalities. 2D Echo was normal with no pulmonary stenosis. Patient was referred to ENT department for deafness. Audiometry revealed bilateral sensorineural hearing loss.
