  • My daughter was diagnosed in the womb with this disease. We went through many tests and questions. She was born with no ulna bone, short radius, and 3 fingers. No bending of the arm as far as an elbow. She is fine, plays basketball at school, everything. This disease is not heard of in my family so what happened to me while I was pregnant with her? I was very careful. We are lucky she has no problems with her heart, many electrocardiograms showing nothing abnormal. Is it possible something can develop over time, any place in her body - especially her heart? How likely is it for her to have a child of her own with this disease? I had my son two years after her and he is fine. Click here for answer
