 en Proximal femoral focal deficiency associated with fibular hemimelia: an uncommon experience, case report and review of literature
Kubwimana, O.; Gashegu, J. & Uwineza, A.

Abstract

Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency (PFFD) and Fibular Hemimelia are rare congenital disorders which are among the most common congenital lower limb disorders. PFFD is the absence or shortening of the proximal femur, whereas Fibular Hemimelia is the aplasia or hypoplasia of the fibula. Here we report on a 3-year-old male with clinical and radiological features of PFFD and Fibular Hemimelia. Although this is a rare condition, its occurrence should be considered in daily clinical activities.
