In this report, the authors describe the angiographic findings in the forearm and hand in Okihiro's syndrome. To the best of their knowledge, it has not been described before. Okihiro et al described hypoplasia of the thenar eminence in association with a congenital disorder of ocular motility previously reported in Duane's syndrome.
