Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare autosomal recessive condition characterized by retinitis pigmentosa, postaxial polydactyly, central obesity, and renal involvement. Renal failure is the commonest cause of death. We report the first case of BBS with documented end-stage kidney disease from India. The diagnosis had been missed until the patient presented at our hospital. The relevant literature has also been reviewed.
