Tetra Amelia Syndrome


Tetra-Amelia syndrome is an extremely rare birth disorder in which the child is born with missing limbs. One or more arm(s) or leg(s) never develops during fetal growth and will be missing when the child is born.

It is also common for a baby to suffer from other deformities, such as, facial abnormalities, heart, skeletal and nervous system complications and genital malformations. Breathing complications are common because the lungs are not developed and formed properly.

The baby will generally present as a stillborn or die shortly after birth because of the severe complications.
