Kabuki syndrome is a rare dysmorphic disorder characterized by peculiar facial appearance, developmental delay, skeletal abnormalities, mental retardation, and dermatoglyphic abnormalities. Neurologic anomalies are frequently observed. This report presents a 2-year-old male with Kabuki syndrome who had a quadrigeminal cistern arachnoid cyst: the second case of such an association to be reported in the literature.
