What is Poland Syndrome 

Poland Syndrome: Understanding the Rare Condition

 

Poland Syndrome is a rare congenital condition that affects approximately 1 in 30,000 people. It is characterized by underdevelopment or absence of chest muscles on one side of the body, which can lead to a number of physical and psychological challenges.

 

Symptoms of Poland Syndrome can vary, but typically include a visibly smaller chest on one side of the body, webbing or fusion of the fingers on the affected side, and a smaller hand or arm. In some cases, there may also be abnormalities in the ribs or breastbone.

 

While the exact cause of Poland Syndrome is unknown, it is believed to be the result of a genetic mutation that occurs early in fetal development. It is not typically inherited, but rather occurs spontaneously.

 

Diagnosis of Poland Syndrome is typically made through physical examination and imaging tests, such as X-rays or MRI scans. Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the condition and the individual's specific needs, but may include reconstructive surgery, physical therapy, and psychological counseling.
