Poland Syndrome and its Ayurvedic Management

Poland syndrome is a birth defect. Birth defects are also called congenital anomalies. Birth defects are those defects that occur before a baby is born. Symptoms usually appear within the first year of life. It may result in disabilities that may be developmental, physical or intellectual. These disabilities may range from mild to moderate. These birth defects are either structural or functional. The exact cause of these birth defects is not known. But it may result from genetic or chromosomal disorders. In this article we are going to discuss one of the birth defects that is Poland syndrome and its Ayurvedic management.


Poland syndrome is a disease in which there is a lack of muscle development on one side of the body. This is a birth defect that is characterized by underdeveloped chest muscles of one side of the body and also short webbed fingers. In this disease, the right side of the body is mainly involved. This syndrome consists of anatomic anomalies such as absence of sternocostal head of the pectoralis major muscle, absence of pectoralis minor muscle, digital anomalies such as syndactyly, absence of the affected side breast, rib aplasia. It is named after British surgeon Sir Alfred Poland. It is also called the Poland sequence.

The cause of this syndrome is unknown. But the researchers say that the syndrome develops due to an interruption of the blood supply to the arteries that lie under the clavicle or collarbone which is called subclavian artery. This blood supply hampers in the 46th day of embryonic development. This artery supplies blood to the embryonic tissue that gives rise to the chest wall and hand.


Patient has an asymmetrical body frame in this syndrome. Patient who is suffering from this syndrome may have following sign and symptoms:

  • Lack of one sided chest muscles
  • Chest appears concave
  • Syndactyly
  • Shorter forearm on one side
  • Underdeveloped rib cage
  • Abnormal gastrointestinal tract
  • Absence of nipples
  • An elevated shoulder blade
  • Fingers are webbed 


This syndrome is usually diagnosed at birth. This is diagnosed on the basis of physical appearance of the baby as discussed above such as absence of chest wall muscles, short forearm etc. Some imaging techniques are also useful in diagnosing this disease such as CT scan which may reveal the extent of muscles affected and also for ribs, shoulder blades.


In modern science, the only treatment of choice is surgery. This procedure has its own side effects such as it could make asymmetry worse.
