We report a case of a Filipino male diagnosed with Noonan syndrome on the baseis of facial dysmorphism, chest deformity, short stature, mental and skeletal retardation, pulmonic stenosis and hypogonadism. In addition, he has three clinical features which are not known to be associated with the syndrome and are perhaps being reported for the first time: structurally normal kidneys with nephrotic syndrome, pituitary macroadenoma and pes varus.
