Poland syndrome is a one-sided upper body deformity where fat and muscle is reduced and there are malformations of the nipple, breast, ribs, arm, hand, and fingers, and abnormal hair distribution. It is commonly undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, affecting mainly males and can be found in conjunction with such disorders as Moebius syndrome and Klippel-Feil syndrome. Diagnosis is via clinical examination and CT scan, and treatment is with the assistance of a plastic surgeon to reconstruct the chest wall and other deformities.
