[edit] Discussion of Poland's syndrome

  • Congenital partial or complete absence of the pectoralis major muscle
  • The inheritance pattern is compatible with an autosomal dominant mutant gene with reduced penetrance or delayed mutation.
  • Because of compensation by the surrounding muscles, absence of the musculus pectonalis major may not result in any functional loss.


  • Anomalies associated with Poland’s syndrome may include
    • Syndactyly
    • Amastia or hypoplasia of the breast
    • Thonacic anomalies such as absent costal cartilage of ribs 2, 3, and 4 or 3, 4, and 5.
