Geleophysic dysplasia (GD) is a rare, recessively inherited lysosomal storage disorder of unknown origin with a progressive course. A 9-year-old Turkish boy born to consanguineous parents with findings typical of GD is reported. Cardiac abnormalities included mitral and aortic stenosis with aortic insufficiency. There was persistent hypo-uricacidaemia, severe pulmonary hypertension and tricuspid insufficiency. He required aortic and mitral valve replacement but, unfortunately, died of a severe pulmonary infection in the post-operative period. The condition has to be differentiated from lysosomal storage disorders such as mucopolysaccharidosis.
