Hemimelia is a congenital disease of complete or partial absence of one or more bones. The most important hypothesis is that radial agenesis is a consequence of neural crest injury. Treatment selection depends on the degree of the deformity and the reduction of limb function. This case report describes a case of bilateral radial hemimelia and multiple malformations in a kitten of aged 2 months treated conservatively with splint bandage, until bone maturity. The re-evaluation was performed 4 years later.

Abstract

Hemimelia is a congenital disease of complete or partial absence of one or more bones. The most important hypothesis is that radial agenesis is a consequence of neural crest injury. Treatment selection depends on the degree of the deformity and the reduction of limb function. This case report describes a case of bilateral radial hemimelia and multiple malformations in a kitten of aged 2 months treated conservatively with splint bandage, until bone maturity. The re-evaluation was performed 4 years later.
