Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 1986 Apr;24(2):137-42. doi: 10.1016/0266-4356(86)90009-4.

Abstract

The association of hand and oro-facial deformities is not uncommon. A case is reported, the literature reviewed and a plea made to discard the term Trismus-Pseudocamptodactyly in favour of the original or a more descriptive title.
