Poland syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by agenesis of the pectoralis major muscle. It is generally unilateral, right-sided, and can be associated with a myriad of thoracic and upper limb defects. Knowledge of this disorder can lead the astute clinician to prompt diagnosis and referral to surgical specialists for further workup. Surgery is often performed for either esthetic or functional concerns.
