Bulldog Syndrome

An X-linked dysmorphia complex [MIM 312870] which is characterised by a large, square protruding jaw, a broad nasal bridge, an upturned nose tip, and macroglossia, resulting in a physiognomy fancifully likened to that of a bulldog, and broad short hands and feet, occasionally with polydactyly, and other defects including pectus excavatum, ventricular septal defect (or other congenital heart defects), Meckel diverticulum, intestinal malrotation, and congenital diaphragmatic hernia, and paediatric tumours, e.g., Wilms tumour, neuroblastoma
