Poland Syndrome Explained

What Is Poland Syndrome?

Poland Syndrome is a disorder that causes people to be born with missing or underdeveloped muscles on one side of the body. This disorder usually impacts the chest, shoulder, arm, and hand. People with this disorder tend to have a missing part of their pectoralis major, a vital chest muscle. In most cases, this missing muscle goes from the upper arm to the breastbone, which is why the arm and shoulders are also affected. This missing muscle can lead to shorter ribs, breast abnormalities, and underdeveloped chest wall muscles.
