Hi there,

I have unilateral aplasia of the Pectoralis Major, which sounds interesting but is surprisingly not. I don't have a left major pectoral muscle. I have been looking on the internet for information about this and have found some interesting things and would appreciate it greatly if anyone could help me answer some questions.

First of all, the only condition I have found to do with pectoral aplasia is Poland Syndrome, however this requires deformation of the hand also, which I don't have - thank goodness. Is my condition likely to be a variant of Poland Syndrome or is it something altogether separate?

And secondly, I also found that Mobius Syndrome is associated with Poland Syndrome and I have some of the symptoms of Mobius Syndrome though very mildly. I dribbled a lot as a child, I breath through my mouth a lot, have difficulty closing my mouth while eating, I have a mild lazy-eye (left) and my speech is quite unclear even though I have been to speech lessons. Though, once again thankfully - I have no trouble smiling.

Is it possible to have a very mild form of Mobius Syndrome?

If anyone has any ideas I would be interested in hearing your thoughts. Thanks, James.
