Gomez Lopez Hernandez syndrome (GLHS) is a rare condition characterized by partial scalp baldness (alopecia); numbness of the face, eyes, sinuses, and mouth (trigeminal anesthesia); and a brain abnormality called rhombencephalosynapsis. Additional symptoms vary but may include distinctive facial features, intellectual disability or other neurological problems, and craniofacial abnormalities. The cause of GLHS is poorly understood. It may be genetic, possibly with autosomal recessive inheritance. Treatment depends on the signs and symptoms present in each person.
