Poland syndrome (PS) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by hypoplasia of the pectoralis major muscle, variable degrees of upper extremity deformities, breast tissue, and anterior chest wall deformities. A 13-year-old male patient had brachydactyly of the fingers of the left hand and symbrachydactyly. On physical examination, the left breast tissue and areola were significantly hypoplasic compared to the right. The patient’s right leg was hypoplasic compared to the left. Lower extremity anomalies are rarer compared to upper extremity anomalies in PS. Since hypoplasia of the upper extremities is one of the common findings of PS, we think that hypoplasia of the lower extremities found in our patient may be a rare component of PS.
