Opitz-Frias syndrome, also known as Opitz G/BBB, G syndrome and hypertelorism-hypospadias syndrome, is a genetic condition that causes several abnormalities in the midline of the body. It occurs as a result of a genetic mutation and more rarely as an autosomal dominant trait. Less severe cases are often not recognised or diagnosed.
