TORI TORI, Carlos  and  SABOGAL CARRENO, Alberto. Poland Syndrome: A case report with dextrocardia and review of the literature. Rev Med Hered [online]. 1999, vol.10, n.2, pp.76-82. ISSN 1018-130X.

We report on a case of Poland anomaly (defect of the muscle pectoralis major and symbrachydactyly on the same side) with dextrocardia. The absence of the pectoralis major muscle without the limb anomaly can be a variant of the Poland sequence (1).While most of the reported cases of this syndrome is in the right side (2) and without rib defects, in our patient the anomaly was on the left side, accompanied by dextrocardia and with anomalies of the rib cage. ( Rev Med Hered 1999; 10:76-82 ).

Keywords : Poland anomaly; dextrocardia; dextroposition; Pectoralis major; Symbrachydactyly.
