Tel Hashomer Camptodactyly Syndrome: A Case Report



Tel Hashomer camptodactyly syndrome (THCS) is a rare autosomal recessive camptodactyly with muscular involvement. The manifestations of THCS other than camptodactyly are clubbed feet, thenar and hypothenar hypoplasia, abnormal palmar creases and dermatoglyphic ridges, spina bifida and mitral valve prolapse. The syndrome was first described by Goodman et al in 1972 and thereafter two further cases with similar phenotype were seen. Herein, we present another case report and review of the literature of other syndromes associated with camptodactyly and mitral valve prolapse. Further cases with this syndrome need to be reported for mapping of the candidate loci. This will help in planning management and genetic counselling.
