Q87.2: Congenital malformation syndromes predominantly involving limbs

You have a congenital disorder that causes a change to your arms and legs, among other things.

A disorder has caused some parts of your body to fail to develop properly, if at all. The condition can be hereditary. Other family members may also be affected by the disease.

Various hereditary diseases can lead to the arms and legs developing differently than they would normally. Organs, such as the heart, can also be affected by the condition and fail to develop properly. In this case, you may have various other symptoms and may even be seriously ill.

  • V: Tentative diagnosis
