Hallermann-Streiff is a rare syndrome characterized by multiple congenital anomalies, especially in the head and face. It was first described by Hallermann in 1948 and later by Streiff in 1950. Patients have a bird-like face, skin atrophy, dwarfism, various eye abnormalities, and hypotrichosis. In the case admitted to our hospital with complaints of fever, cough, and failure to thrive, we detected microphthalmia, bilateral leukocoria, cataract, eyebrow hypotrichosis, a prominent nose, and depressed nasal root. The patient was diagnosed with Hallermann-Streiff syndrome. This case was presented because of its rare occurrence in the literature.
