Phocomelia and additional anomalies in two sisters.

Two daughters of non-consanguineous normal parents had phocomelia of both lower extremities with 4-toed feet. The older sister also had phocomelia of the left upper extremity with 5 finger rays; she died immediately after birth. Autopsy disclosed a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, common mesentery and agenesis of the gallbladder, and normal female genitalia. In addition, the younger sister showed a bony skull defect, diastasis recti, agenesis of the uterus and agenesis or atresia of the vagina, hypoplasia of the sacrum and hypo/dysplasia of the pelvic bones. Her growth and mental development were normal. The patterns of anomalies of the two sisters do not fit into any of the syndromes featuring phocomelia; there was no prenatal exposure to thalidomide or any other possible teratogen.[1]
