This child having malocclusion of multiple teeth with dental carries, large forehead, small chin, puffiness around both eye, looks like “elfin facies” with low IQ. He has a systolic murmur (Grade-3/6) in the base of the heart. Echo, Doppler gradient found in the just supra-valvular area, 114mmHg (Supra-valvular Aortic stenosis) & MVP (Mitra valve prolapse). This child also has blockage of naso-lacrimal duct, causing watering of eye.
