Fuhrmann syndrome of right-angle bowed femora, absence of fibulae and digital anomalies: Two further cases



We describe 2 patients with bilateral right-angle bowing of femora, absence of fibulae, and reduced, flattened and nail-less toes and symmetrical fingernail deficiency in a consanguineous family of ethnic South Vietnamese Baptists and a non-consanguineous Polish family. These cases are similar to those reported by Fuhrmann et al. (in “Skeletal Dysplasias,” New York: Alan R. Liss, Inc., pp 519–524), indicating possible autosomal recessive inheritance of this rare non-lethal limb malformation syndrome.
