Case Study
The article presents case studies of patients suffering from congenital contractural archnodactyly which is an autosomal dominant disorder of connective tissue. One of the case studies is of a fourteen year old patient who is facing cardiac complications. His radiographic examination revealed mild scoliosis. The physical examination of another patient revealed crumpling of the ear helix, contractures of the elbows, and camptodactyly.
