Introduction: Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl syndrome (LMBBS) is a rare autosomal-recessive disorder, which is characterized principally by cardinal symptoms of marked central obesity, retinal dystrophy, polydactyly, mental retardation, hypogonadism and renal dysfunction. Case presentation: We report a case of a 20-year-old male who presented to us with history of fever, vomiting and dizziness. He was incidentally diagnosed as a case of LMBBS as the patient was having polydactyly, retinitis pigmentosa, central obesity, hypogonadism and low IQ. Conclusion: Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl syndrome is a very rare syndrome with very low incidence; hence, we are reporting this case. In addition, we advice more diligent approach from various specialties, so that this syndrome can be picked up at an early age.
