Symptoms of multiple pterygium syndrome, Escobar type vary but may include short stature, vertebral (spine) defects, joint contractures, and webbing of the neck, armpit, elbow, knee, between the legs, and of the fingers and toes.[4] The joint contractures may make walking more difficult. Other symptoms may include down-slanting eyes, skins fold over the inner corners of the eyes (epicanthal folds), a small jaw, cleft palate, low set ears, and drooping eyelids (ptosis). Males with Escobar syndrome may have undescended testicles at birth, and females may have absent labia majora.[1, 2][4] Last updated: 11/16/2016
