Two unrelated children, less than 3 years of age with the Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome are reported. Some of the major and minor manifestations of the syndrome are reviewed. Emphasis is placed on the possibility of diagnosis in infancy and childhood, a time when some of the characteristic features of the syndrome may be lacking. The significance of early diagnosis and its value to genetic counseling as well as for better documentation of the natural course of the disease are discussed.
