[Article in French]


Characteristic features of the coxopodopatellar syndrome are patellar hypoplasia, pelvic skeletal anomalies and morphologic abnormalities of the front of foot. Fifteen cases with variable degrees of anomaly were observed in one family. Since a world-wide literature review failed to demonstrate any perfectly identical observation it was considered that this triple lesion constitutes an original syndrome worth reporting in detail.
