Abstract

We describe two siblings with asymmetric limb reduction malformations. Such anomalies are usually considered to result from sporadic events, but the recurrence in siblings without any identifiable teratogenic insult suggests a genetic etiology. This finding becomes important when parents are counseled about future pregnancies. The use of prenatal diagnostic techniques during subsequent pregnancies should be considered.
