Abstract

Summary Thirteen known cases of amelia, congenital absence of all extremities, are reviewed from the literature. An additional case is reported, with clinical and roentgenographic findings; an interesting feature of this case was the manifestation of unexplained, intermittent hyperthermia. A brief summary of the present-day concept of production of congenital anomalies in general, and amelia more specifically, is presented.
