Ochoa or urofacial syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive syndrome with around 150 cases reported in the medical literature comprising of neurogenic bladder and facial abnormalities, culminating in obstructive uropathy and chronic kidney disease. We report a 5-year-old boy presenting to us with Stage IV chronic kidney disease with bilateral hydroureteronephrosis secondary to chronic urinary incontinence. His peculiar facial expression with a grimace while smiling suggested the diagnosis of Ochoa syndrome. He was managed conservatively for neurogenic bladder and is under follow-up. We wish to highlight this unique syndrome and the simplicity in making this syndromic diagnosis, just by appreciating abnormal facial expressions.
