Albright’s Syndrome is a rare disease which occurs sporadically. Its aetiology is not known. It is extremely rare in males. To the best of our knowledge this Syndrome is not associated with any congenital visceral anomaly. We present a case of Albright’s Syndrome in a boy who also showed a congenital ectopic kidney. The literature of this syndrome is reviewed with a view to update the current knowledge.
