Combination of several defects

What is FFU syndrome?

Femoral-fibula-ulna syndrome (FFU syndrome) is a very rare congenital disease, usually comprised of an asymmetric combination of several defects. These defects usually affect the thigh bone (femur) and the calf bone (fibula) of one side of the body, as well as the ulna or the elbow joint (elbow aplasia) on the opposite side.

FFU syndrome is sometimes also associated with PFFD.
