What do you think??

Posted Aug 25 2008 8:23am
Recently had a birth where the baby had the following:

Micrognathy (small jaw)

One arm had no radius or ulna, hand was attached at elbow, no thumb present (four digits total)

Other arm had no ulna, hand attached at wrist, no thumb present (4 digits total)

Feet looked abnormally wide and flat

Possible band noted on one toe

All toes accounted for

No other apparent abnormalities noted at birth

Baby transitioned normally after birth, went to newborn nursery

Any thoughts? Ideas? I'm thinking it has to be some kind of chromosomal abnormality, but I can't think of which one. Also, possible amniotic band syndrome? Even the nursery staff was flummoxed as to what it could be.
