tibial agenesis

Tuesday 7 March 2006

Tibial hemimelia is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by deficiency of the tibia with relatively intact fibula. Tibial hemimelia is identified as a solitary disorder, or a part of more complex malformation syndromes.

Although the majority of cases with tibial hemimelia are sporadic, affected families with possible autosomal dominant or autosomal recessive inheritance have been reported.
