Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome

Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome is a congenital disorder first recognized in 1964 by Dr. H.R. Wiedemann, a geneticist, and then in 1969 by Dr. J. Bruce Beckwith, a pediatric pathologist.

Ear lobe creases were first described by Irving (1967) and then used as one of the criteria for diagnosis of the illness, and/or pit indentations on the posterior helix.
