Leprechaunism;
Donohue syndrome
Description
Leprechaunism (Donohue syndrome) is an autosomal recessive disorder of insulin-resistance characterized by intrauterine and postnatal growth retardation, acanthosis nigricans, lipoatrophy, and genitomegaly. The disease is known as leprechaunism because infants with the disease show an elf-like face and short stature.
