Short rib-polydactyly syndrome in twins: Beemer-Langer type with polydactyly.Clin Genet. 1996 Sep; 50(3):159-63.CG
We present premature female twin fetuses with concordant extremely shortened ribs, short limbs, macrocephaly, median cleft upper lip and facial dysmorphism. Based on radiological criteria and the pattern of associated abnormalities, a lethal short rib-polydactyly syndrome (Beemer-Langer type) was diagnosed. The differential diagnosis of this entity is discussed.
