Larsen Syndrome shows as multiple congenital dislocations and characteristic facies (prominent forehead, depressed nasal bridge, wide-spaced eyes); also clubfoot, bilateral dislocation of elbows, hips and knees (most characteristically, anterior dislocation of the tibia on the femur), and short metacarpals with cylindrical fingers lacking the usual tapering. Cleft palate, hydrocephalus, and abnormalities of spinal segmentation are found in some.
