Abstract

Freeman-Sheldon Syndrome is a well-defined rare congenital syndrome characterized with skeletal anomalies, joint contractures and typical facial appearance. Most of the cases of Freeman-Sheldon Syndrome are sporadic without family history. Etiology of this sydrome is inadequately understood. It affects the males and females equally. Early diagnosis and early successful surgical management is important to achive good results. Since almost one hundred cases have been reported in the literature uptoday, we want to present a case with Freeman- Sheldon Syndrome in this study.
