    General Discussion
    Floating-Harbor syndrome (FHS) is an extremely rare disorder characterized by short stature, delayed language skills, and a triangular shaped face. A broad nose, deep-set eyes and a wide mouth with thin lips give an affected individual a distinct appearance. FHS was named after the hospitals at which the first two cases were seen: the Boston Floating Hospital and Harbor General Hospital in California. The cause of this disorder is not known.
