Polands Syndrome

What is Poland’s Syndrome?

Poland’s Syndrome is a pattern of one-sided malformations characterized by the absence of the pectoralis major (chest) muscle and short, webbed fingers on the same side of the body. Poland’s Syndrome can affect either side of the body but occurs more often on the right side. The syndrome was named after Alfred Poland, the person who first documented the abnormalities. It has also been called Poland Sequence, Poland Anomaly, and Poland Syndactyly.
