    A child with complete syndactyly of cup shaped hands and mirror polysyndactyly of the feet, together with a nasal defect, was identified out of a total of 1,031,439 livebirths. She had a pattern of multiple congenital anomalies which was similar to that first described by Laurin et al in 1964 and by Sandrow et al in 1970. Two more cases with a similar pattern of congenital anomalies have recently been published so this is the fifth reported case with this constellation.
