A Case of Bilateral Agenesis of the Femur
Bilateral femoral agenesis is a rare anomaly. To the best of our knowledge, only three cases of simple congenital anomaly and three cases associated with femoral facial syndrome have been reported. Here, we describe a simple form of bilateral femoral agenesis observed in one of the 2 dead fetuses delivered after termination of a 24-week twin pregnancy of a normal mother. Post-mortem x-ray examination confirmed the agenesis of both femurs and also left fibula.
