Russell-Silver syndrome is a disorder present at birth characterized by low birth weight, poor postnatal growth, craniofacial disproportion, clinodactyly, normal intelligence, downward curvature of the corner of the mouth, syndactyly, cafe-au-fait spots, cryptorchidism. etc. Episodes of hypoglycemia is an important feature in the diagnosis of RSS. Diagnosis of RSS remains clinical as no definite etiology or specific test has been established. It appears to be sporadic in most instances and has been noted to occur in all racial groups. We report to you one such case of an 11-year-old boy who presented with most of the features mentioned above. Early diagnosis of such cases is essential to overcome the psychological trauma to the patient.
