Yunis-Varon syndrome is a very rare condition that causes a variety of complications in systems throughout the body.
Yunis-Varon syndrome is a rare, congenital (present at birth) condition that can affect the skeletal system, nervous system, hair and teeth. Many children with this condition have characteristic facial features or abnormalities of fingers and toes. In most cases, babies who are born with this condition experience breathing and/or feeding challenges.
Yunis-Varon syndrome is passed down in families (hereditary).
Signs and symptoms of Yunis-Varon syndrome include:
Abnormalities of fingers and toes (such as missing or underdeveloped thumbs, toes, or pinky fingers)
Abnormalities of the ears
Anteverted nares (upturned nostrils)
Eyes that appear large or bulging
Failure to thrive (child who doesn’t grow or gain weight at the expected rate for their age)
