Amazia, the absence of the mammary gland, is a very rare congenital anomaly of the breasts. Bilateral absence of the breasts may occur as an isolated anomaly or may be associated with a syndrome or a cluster of other anomalies. Although the literature examining pediatric breast abnormalities is replete with case reports and series, bilateral amazia together with skeletal anomalies has not yet been described. An unusual case of amazia associated with face, limb, and vertebrae anomalies is presented.
