General Discussion

Hanhart syndrome is a rare birth defect in which the most obvious signs are a short, incompletely developed tongue (hypoglossia); absent or partially missing fingers and/or toes (hypodactylia); malformed arms and/or legs (peromelia); and an extremely small jaw (micrognathia). A more complete list of other signs frequently encountered may be found below. The severity of these physical abnormalities varies greatly from case to case. Children with this disorder often have some, but not all, of the symptoms. The cause of Hanhart syndrome is not fully understood.
