It is possible that the main title of the report Levy-Yeboa Syndrome is not the name you expected.
Levy-Yeboa syndrome (LYS) is a recently recognized, inherited (congenital), multi-system disorder involving signs of musculoskeletal involvement such as low muscle tone and stiffening of the joints of the arms and legs (contractions), loss of hearing (neuronal deafness), intense burn-like eruptions of the skin containing clear fluid (bullous eruptions) and dangerous gastrointestinal distress involving substantial loss of fluids (secretory diarrhea), among other issues. Most, if not all, of these signs are apparent at, or within a few months of, birth.
Children with Levy-Yeboa syndrome appear to have blank expressions in their faces. This is due to the low tone of the muscles that normally reflect emotions..
As of June 2006, three children of one family have been reliably diagnosed with LYS. A child in another family died before a definitive diagnosis could be made.
