Medical Definition of Bardet-Biedl syndrome
Note: Bardet-Biedl syndrome is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait requiring that both parents pass on a copy of the defective gene on a chromosome other than a sex chromosome. While it has been associated with mutations in at least 14 different genes, most forms of the disease are caused by a single mutation in only one gene.— compare laurence-moon syndrome
