Phocomelia: report of three cases.

Abstract

Three infants were born with phocomelia in Winnipeg during the period from May 1961 to May 1962. In one case thalidomide had been administered to the mother early in the pregnancy. No etiological agent was discovered in the other two, both of whom died. Known teratogenic agents capable of causing phocomelia are reviewed, but no clear association with the two cases described in this report is evident.
