++

Very rare X-linked syndrome with radial aplasia, anogenital anomalies, and sometimes hydrocephalus.

++

Radial Aplasia and Anogenital Anomalies.

++

Very rare. X-linked genetic inheritance.

++

Radial aplasia with normal legs, hydrocephalus, hypospadias, imperforate anus.

++

Perioperative positioning must prevent extrinsic compression of upper limb arteries. Avoid radial artery catheterization. Evaluate neurological status.

++

Radial aplasia can be observed in many syndromes, including the following:

++

Wilms Tumor Radial Bilateral Aplasia Nephroblastoma: Metacarpal anomalies, radius absent or abnormal lower limb deficiency, terminal hypoplasia fingers, and chromosomal rearrangement.

++

Baller-Gerold Syndrome: Autosomal recessive, characterized by short stature, absent or hypoplastic radii, craniosynostosis, congenital cardiopathy, and various other anomalies such as turribrachycephaly, low-set, posteriorly rotated ears with conductive hearing loss; down-slanting palpebral fissures and epicanthal folds. Other features include hypertelorism; microstomia; perineal fistula; anteriorly placed anus; imperforate anus; renal anomalies; rectovaginal fistula; vertebral anomalies; fused carpal bones; mental retardation; absent or hypoplastic thumbs; absent carpals; metacarpals; and phalanges.
