Freeman-Sheldon syndrome (FSS) is an extremely rare syndrome with only about 100 cases reported [1]. It was first described by Freeman and Sheldon in 1938 [2]. It is characterized by oropharyngeal abnormalities, contractures of the hands and feet and a characteristic "whistling" facies. We report a male neonate of Freeman Sheldon Syndrome presenting with small mouth (microstomia) and pursed lips, prominent nasolabial folds and bilateral distal arthrogryposis. A brief review of literature has also been added.
