Robinow syndrome is an exceedingly rare condition which may be transmitted as an autosomal dominant or recessive condition. Patients are short stature with the forearm segments classically most notably short (mesomelia). The fingers and toes are also short (brachydactyly) and may be curved as well (clinodactyly). There are classically spinal malformations, craniofacial anomalies, and abnormalities of the genitourinary system.
