HEMIHYPERTROPHY AND HEMIATROPHY: Congenital Total Unilateral Somatic Asymmetry.

PEABODY, CHARLES W.

Archive: PDF Only

The congenital anomaly of total unilateral hemihypertrophy and hemiatrophy is either becoming more frequent or more commonly recognized. Its causation remains without satisfactory explanation. The discrepancy in growth may interfere with efficient body function sufficiently at times to indicate measures of control, which the writer believes should consist of epiphyseal arrests at appropriate ages.
