Poland Syndrome is a rare congenital alteration. It is characterized by hypoplasia or absence of the pectoral muscle, hypoplasia or aplasia of the mammary gland, nipple, ribs or cartilages, and hand malformations. A case is reported of a girl showing these malformations, and neuronal migration abnormalities. Emphasis is made upon the need for a multidisciplinary team for management and rehabilitation. A literature review is presented, including pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and treatment.
