Kabuki make-up syndrome (Niikawa-Kuroki syndrome) associated with congenital heart disease.


Kabuki make-up syndrome has been reported mainly among Japanese, so far occurring in more than 20 cases. Among these, however, only one case associated with congenital heart defect has been reported. We have treated three patients with this syndrome and of these two had congenital heart disease. We suggest the possibility that the association of congenital heart disease with Kabuki make-up syndrome may not be fortuitous.
