Summary

Association, in one patient, of the following malformations: brachydactylia of all segments but terminal phalanges; proximal symphalangism of many fingers and toes; abnormalities of carpal and tarsal bones; partial duplication of both big toes; mild hypertelorism. Genetic transmission seems to be recessive autosomal.
