We describe two siblings with asymmetric limb reduction malformations. Such anomalies are usually considered to result from sporadic events, but the recurrence in siblings without any identifiable teratogenic insult suggests a genetic etiology. This finding becomes important when parents are counseled about future pregnancies. The use of prenatal diagnostic techniques during subsequent pregnancies should be considered.
