LEOPARD syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by the constellation of skin, facial and cardiac abnormalities. Most cases with this diagnosis have only a few of the features described and patients with full clinical spectrum are very rare. We report a case of 15-year-old rural school going teenage girl born to non-consanguineous parents with lentigines, cardiac abnormality (mild mitral regurgitation with ischemic heart disease), hypertelorism, kyphoscoliosis and presentation of exudative eosinophilic pleural effusion.
