Risk Factors There is not a published study specifically focusing on the risk factors for phocomelia yet. Birth Defects Orig Art Ser.

Internal defects commonly involve the heart, kidneys, and urinary, alimentary, and genital tracts. S Afr Med J. Sequence analysis detects variants that are benign, likely benign, of uncertain significancelikely pathogenic, or pathogenic.


RBS is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.

From Smelia, the free encyclopedia. Based on our experience, for the evaluation of cases with intercalary defects, it is important to clearly define the bones affected, and for these purposes it is essential to have a good radiological examination of the limb, which also helps clearly distinguish true phocomelia cases.

A century later, inSlingenberg [] presented a child born in in the Netherlands with tetraphocomelia, hands with the thumb and two ameelia, and each foot having a big toe and three toes, also possibly a Roberts syndrome [ Czeizel et al.

Mildly affected individuals may survive to adulthood. Primarily prescribed as a sedative or hypnotic, thalidomide also claimed to cure “anxiety, insomnia, gastritis, and tension”. Positional information in chick limb morphogenesis. Legs and feet are also affected similarly to the arms and hands.

Advances in prosthetic limbs have increased greatly during the twentieth century. Alterations in ESCO2 function result in lack of cohesion at heterochromatic regions, which may lead to activation of the mitotic spindle checkpoint, with the subsequent mitotic delay and impaired cell proliferation observed in RBS focomlia.

Individuals with phocomelia will often lack thigh bones, focomelka the hands or feet may be abnormally small or appear as stumps due to their close “attachment to the body.

Intrauterine growth retardation, mild frontonasal dysplasia, phocomelic upper limbs with absent thumbs and a variety of internal malformations including choanal atresia, congenital heart defects, polysplenia, absent gall bladder as well as genitourinary anomalies.
