Answer

The presence of congenital anomalies and dysmorphic features may suggest a specific syndrome. For example, the existence of dysmorphology associated with obesity and developmental delays may suggest syndromes such as Prader-Willi and Laurence-Moon. The presence of nystagmus in an individual with suspected panhypopituitarism raises the suspicion for septo-optic dysplasia.
