Arm Short – Rhyzomelia

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see an arm with relative shortness compared to the forearm (rhyzomelia). The other image shows an abnormal morphology of the penis. It is possible to conclude that this child suffers from a systemic disorder inclusive of chondrodystrophy. Please see the rest of the images of this patient in the gallery.
