Poland syndrome: Two cases of new-borns with left-sided chest defect and dextrocardia.

Poland Syndrome is a rare condition evident at birth that includes a wide range of malformations of chest and arm. The exact cause of the syndrome is unknown, but genetic involvement and a vascular abnormality of the subclavian artery are suspected. We report two cases of right-sided Poland Syndrome with true dextrocardia, diagnosed in neonatal period. Our report is focused on illustrating the importance of physical diagnosis and confirming that the associated features vary greatly among the individuals.
