Bilateral Poland anomaly.

Author information

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Hacettepe University Medical Faculty, Ankara, Turkey.


Bilateral absence of the pectoralis major muscle with accompanying abnormalities of shoulder muscles has been reported in patients without Poland anomaly (PA). However, symmetric absence of pectoralis major muscles, hypoplasia of breasts and nipples with symmetric chest wall deformity and bilateral hand anomaly has not previously been reported. A 6-year-old girl with bilateral absence of pectoralis major muscles and hand involvement and symmetric chest wall deformity is, to our knowledge, the first known case of bilateral Poland anomaly.
