Upper and Lower Limb Reduction Deformity

What is Reduction Deformity?

Was your baby born with arms and legs that are smaller than normal? If so, your child may have Upper and Lower Limb Reduction Deformity. It is estimated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that roughly 1,000 babies are born in the United States each year with upper limb reduction. They have also reported that an estimated 750 babies are born with lower limb reduction as well. These reductions are serious and some children with this defect are likely to suffer a reduction in both the upper and lower limbs.

Upper and Lower Limb Reduction Deformity is a condition in which the arms or legs of the child are abnormally small or underdeveloped. In most cases, the limbs are just smaller than average, but there are a number of reported cases where the child is missing a limb completely. This malformation can include the following developmental issues such as: decreased motor skill, the need for daily assistance, activity limitations, and emotional and physical hardship. There are some options such as prosthetics and orthotics that can help.

  • Celexa
  • Prozac
