Multiple pterygium syndrome is a rare, inherited disorder manifested by growth retardation, facial or genital anomalies, and widespread musculoskeletal deformities. Pterygia are the predominant hallmark of the syndrome. Five children with multiple pterygium syndrome were treated from 1978 to 1987. Treatment involved both upper and lower pterygia and contractures. The results of treatment and modalities used are discussed and a protocol suggested.
