DOI : 10.5152/tftrd.2015.82084 Poland syndrome is a rarely encountered genetic disorder that is characterized by the unilateral absence of pectoralis major muscle. Ipsilateral upper limb extremity deformities, various malformations of the anterior chest wall and other organ abnormalities are commonly seen. Various cardiac abnormalities and malignancies can also be seen in this syndrome. Herein, we present two rare cases that we diagnosed for the first time with Poland syndrome, with the literature to emphasize these characteristics. The first case is an adult male patient with ipsilateral symphalangism; the second case is a 19-month-old baby girl with slight form of Poland syndrome.
