McKusick–Kaufman syndrome is a genetic condition associated with MKKS.

The condition is named for Dr. Robert L. Kaufman and Victor McKusick.[1] It is sometimes known by the abbreviation MKS.[2] In infancy it can be difficult to distinguish between MKS and the related Bardet–Biedl syndrome, as the more severe symptoms of the latter condition rarely materialise before adulthood.
