Caption: Arms of a child with Poland syndrome. The left arm (at right) is underdeveloped and significantly smaller. Poland syndrome is a congenital (present at birth) condition where the chest muscles on one side are absent or underdeveloped. There are often also arm and hand abnormalities on the same side of the body, such as underdevelopment, and fusion of the fingers. Poland syndrome is a rare condition that is thought to be caused by disruption to blood flow during embryonic development. It is more than twice as common in males as females.
