Distal arthrogryposes are a group of syndromes with congenital contractures primarily involving the hands and feet, which often are associated with abnormal facies, and are transmitted by autosomal dominant inheritance. Many affected individuals present in an orthopaedic setting. The features of these syndromes are described to allow diagnosis, establish prognosis, provide family counseling, and treatment. Increased recognition will lead to improved knowledge of the natural history.
