Cenani-Lenz syndrome is a form of complete syndactyly resembling the spoon hand in Apert syndrome. It Is often associated with disorganization of phalanges, the fusion of metacarpals and mesomelic shortness of the arm. We describe an additional case of Cenani-Lenz type of syndactylism in a 16 month-old girl who also has rib and vertebral abnormalities and mixed type hearing loss, that have not been seen before in a single patient.
