Larsen's syndrome;

Clin Pediatr (Phila). 1975 Jan;14(1):53-60. doi: 10.1177/000992287501400106.


Three cases of Larsen's syndrome with retospective diagnoses have been described. All of them had both the clinical and radiographic signs characteristic for the syndrome, namely flat, hyperteloric facies, multiple dislocations of the joints, club foot deformity, and long cylindrical fingers. The radiographic findings were generalized and diagnostic in all of the cases. Our patients had additional ossification centers for the body of calcaneus.
