Limb deficiency disorders are rare, etiologically heterogeneous skeletal dysplasias; that occur as an isolated anomaly or as a part of a syndrome. The term – limb deficiency, incorporates both absence and size reduction of any of the 120 human limb bones, with around 205 identified abnormalities. Congenital absence of tibia is a rare and severe lower limb malformation with an incidence of approximately 1:1,000,000 live births. Absence of tibia with ectrodactyly (lobster claw deformity) or tibial hemimelia with split hand/foot malformation (TH-SHFM) or Gollop-Wolfgang complex1 is a rarer malformation with highly variable manifestations. The first case with this pattern of malformations was reported by Sir Ambroise Pare way back in 1575.2 The full blown syndrome consists of aplasia of tibia and split hand/ split foot deformity.3
