ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Tibial Hemimelia

History: A 2 year old male presents for evaluation with noted foot abnormality and shortened limb.

Findings: Pre-axial polydactyly with three medial first rays. Marked shortening of the right lower extremity with absence of the right tibia and bowing of the fibula. An ipsilateral hypoplastic acetabulum and right femoral head are also present. Also noted is a posterior vertebral body fusion anomaly.

Ddx: The most common congenital long bone deficiency is fibular hemimelia, which is congenital absence of the fibula. In this case, a single right fibula which does not articulate with the femur or talus, is present.

Exam: Readily apparent physical exam findings reveal right foot polydactyly and right lower extremity shortening in a non-ambulatory child.

No MeSH data available.


Seven digits with pre-axial polydactyly.
