Purpose: To describe the spectrum of radiological findings in 12 patients with H syndrome.
Patients and methods: Various radiological examinations of 12 patients (M=9, F=3) with H syndrome were reviewed.
Results: Symmetrical thickening of the skin of the subcutaneous tissue at the lower half of the body (n=9, 75%), with retracted micropenis in males (n=5, 55%). Groin varices (n=5, 42%) and lymphadenopathy (n=5, 42%) were observed in severe cases. Severe symmetrical flexion deformities of the fingers (n=7, 58%) were relatively common.
Conclusion: Skin thickening with subcutaneous fat infiltration and deformities of the hands and feet are typical for H syndrome.
