D'AMATO GUTIERREZ, Mónica  and  PALACIO DIAZ, Felipe A. A case report of a patient with FATCO syndrome: fibular aplasia, tibial campomelia and oligosyndactyly. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.3, pp.e167-e170. ISSN 0325-0075.

The FATCO syndrome, (Fibular Aplasia, Tibial Campomelia and Oligosyndactyly) are bone malformations with main alteration in lower limbs. It is a rare entity and there are few cases reported in international literature, and so far there are not published cases in Colombia. Here we present a case of a male newborn with prenatal and postnatal signs consistent with FATCO syndrome without other organs malformations, and there is a brief discussion about this syndrome and other different malformations associated with it.

Keywords : Fibula; Abnormalities; Bone development; Tibia.
