• The longitudinal course of two sisters with multiple pterygium syndrome is reported. The findings in these siblings are compared with those of 27 children described in the medical literature. The longitudinal course of short stature, scoliosis, talipes equinovarus, pterygia, hearing loss, and pubertal and intellectual development in this syndrome is described. Recommendations are made for a multidisciplinary approach to individuals with multiple pterygium syndrome, which includes the services of a primary care physician, orthopedist, physical therapist, and plastic surgeon.
