ACROMEGALOID-HYPERTELORISM-PECTUS CARINATUM SYNDROME

an inborn situation, thought to be passed on genetically, commonly identified by smaller-than-average heights, cognitive retardation, eyes that are far apart from one another, and bone malformations, including a larger-than-average head and a malformed sternum.
