A case of the Saldino-Noonan type of short rib-polydactyly syndrome is reported. Although multiple internal malformations have been described in this syndrome, no significant visceral abnormalities were detected in this case except for the hypoplastic lungs. A similar case was reported by Spranger et al. in 1974.
