Unusual facies, arthrogryposis, advanced skeletal maturation and unique bone changes

A new congenital malformation syndrome

Abstract

Two strikingly similar infant siblings showed the following pattern of anomalies: unusual cranio-facial appearance, arthrogryposis, advanced bone age of the hips and unique skeletal X-ray abnormalities. They represent a previously unrecognised, fatal malformation syndrome.
