A new patella syndrome

Clin Genet. 1987 Mar;31(3):143-7. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-0004.1987.tb02785.x.


A 14-year-old boy is reported with bilateral hypoplastic patellae and multiple congenital skeletal anomalies. Since this constellation of bony malformations has not been described previously, we believe this represents a new syndrome most probably of genetic etiology.
