abstract

  • A male infant, one of monozygotic twins, was born with absence of fibulae, ectrodactyly of the right hand and both feet, with accompanying deficiencies. This second case report of a discordant fibular aplasia developmental field defect occurring in monozygotic twins, although likely sporadic, is interesting because of the similar pattern of anomalies.
