Congenital limd deformity is a rare disease that distressed not only the patient but also the parent. Thus Dr Ahmad Hata in his book will explain about the disease and its various condition in the hope that it will assist the patient and his parent to understand about the disease. These conditions prominently affected the upper limb as compared to the lower limb and probably due to multiple causes such as infection, chemical exposure, genetic inheritance, environmental factor or combination of them. The deformity is easily recognized yet may need additional investigation for confirmation such radiography, ultrasound or genetic analysis. Selection of treatments will depend on the severity of the deformity, and can be treated by replacing with artificial limb (replace), surgical amputation (remove), reconstruction (repair) of the limbs o combination of these.
