Congenital distal humeral dysplasia: A case report

Abstract

Congenital dysplasia of the humerus is very rare. It is characteristically seen in omodysplasia and has also been reported as one of the associated features of Larsen's syndrome. We report a 4-year-old girl with bilateral humero-ulnar dysplasia, with dislocation of the elbows, facial dysmorphism, ball-and-socket ankles and foot deformities. Although the elbow dysplasia is similar to that seen in Larsen's syndrome, other pathognomic features of Larsen's syndrome were absent. The changes seen in the elbows in this patient are also different from those encountered in omodysplasia. We believe that this condition may be a distinct form of skeletal dysplasia hitherto undescribed.
