Robert's syndrome

This baby girl was born with tetraphocomelia (Symmetrical absence or hypoplasia of the radius, ulna, tibia, fibula, and femur cause shortening of the limbs.) and multiple organ malformations. The cluster of dysmorphic features is consistent with Robert's syndrome (also called pseudothalidomide syndrome). The eyes were small with corneal opacities. The baby did not survive.
