Coexistence of aplasia cutis congenita of the scalp with symbrachydactyly of bilateral feet: an unreported form of Adams-Oliver syndrome
- 64 Downloads
A case report of aplasia cutis congenita of the vertex of the scalp associated with symbrachydactyly of both feet is presented. The Adams-Oliver syndrome, which is also known as Type 2 aplasia cutis congenita, is aplasia cutis congenita of the midline scalp seen together with congenital limb anomalies. Although various limb anomalies linked to aplasia cutis congenita have been described in the literature, we were not able to find any report of bilateral symbrachydactyly of the feet related to aplasia cutis congenita. Thus, this case seems to represent an unreported form of the Adams-Oliver syndrome. Etiology, associated anomalies, treatment and complications of Adams-Oliver syndrome are reviewed.
