Pulmonary hypoplasia, multiple ankyloses, and camptodactyly: one syndrome or some related forms?Helv Paediatr Acta. 1978 Apr; 33(1):73-9.HP
Four perinatally dying infants with multiple congenital malformations, including pulmonary hypoplasia, multiple ankyloses, abnormalities of the face and camptodactyly are presented. The differences both for severity of pulmonary hypoplasia and for the type of associated malformations suggest that this complex of abnormalities is not a single syndrome but a complex of related entities. These entities and some other genetical syndromes may form a "community of malformations" involving facial, skeletal (arthrogryposis, camptodactyly) and placental abnormalities.
