Infants born with phocomelia will normally have a petite head with “sparse hair” that may appear “silvery-blonde. Although operations may improve some abnormalities, many are not surgically treatable due to the lack of nerves and other related structures. National Organization for Rare Disorders. InBouchard [] described a child born in France in with tetraphocomelia, cleft lip, and abnormal ears, possibly a case of Roberts syndrome.

Maternal factors in congenital limb-reduction defects. Of the seven cases with sexual ambiguity, only four had specific data on the limb s involved, and interestingly all of them had the lower limbs involved, and one also had the upper right limb affected. Author manuscript; available in PMC May Once the pathogenic variants have been identified in an affected family member, prenatal diagnosis for a pregnancy at increased risk and preimplantation genetic diagnosis for RBS are possible.


Therefore, the analyses of focomeliq were restricted to the groups of cases that had isolated phocomelia versus those with MCA. Much later, inAldrovandus ame,ia reported a patient with three-finger phocomelia of right arm and amelia of left arm.

Mosaic variegated aneuploidy syndrome, characterized by severe microcephaly, growth deficiency, intellectual disability, childhood cancer predisposition, and constitutional mosaicism for chromosomal gains and losses. The term may be modified to indicate the number of legs or arms missing at birth, such as tetra-amelia for the absence of all four limbs. S Afr Med J.

Differential Diagnosis While some syndromes share some of the clinical features of Roberts syndrome RBSa physical examination and skeletal survey followed by the finding of cytogenetic abnormalities should allow for differentiation between individuals with RBS and those with conditions that are clinically similar. Mortality is high among most of the severely affected pregnancies and newborns.

The ability of the test method used to detect a variant that is present in the indicated gene. Some of these genes are involved in the initiation and patterning of both the upper and g lower limbs, and others are differentially expressed in the developing forelimb and hindlimb.

Epidemiologic data on phocomelia are scarce. Epidemiological differences between phocomelia and amelia highlighted possible differences in their causes. Case 3 Case 3.

Br J Obstet Gynecol. In severe cases, only three fingers are present and rarely, only one finger. For this study on phocomelia, surveillance programs were asked to provide de-identified information on the cases, following a common protocol, as detailed in the article by Castilla and Mastroiacovo [] in this issue of the Journal, with data on phenotype, genetic testing, and selected demographic and prenatal information.

Retrieved 20 May Other ameila may be observed: Although real differences in total prevalence cannot be ruled out, in spite of a critical review of all the cases, some misclassification could have played a role in the results shown in Table IIas the information available for some cases was less documented.

Vascular etiology of limb defects: Splenogonadal fusion with limb defects and micrognathia, characterized by abnormal fusion between the spleen and the gonad or the remnants of ameila mesonephros.

Compared with isolated phocomelia cases, we found that those with MCA had low birth weights much more frequently, and we consider that they may be affected by some additional factors causing intrauterine growth retardation as their gestational ages did not differ significantly from those of the isolated cases.
