Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Sheldon-Hall syndrome, referred to as distal arthrogryposis type 2B, is a disorder identified by joint deformities that restrict movement in the feet and hands. The specific hand and foot abnormalities vary amongst affected individuals; the irregularities exist at birth and usually do not worsen over time. People with Sheldon-Hall syndrome additionally usually have unique facial features, which include a triangular face; outside edges of the eyes that direct downward; deep folds up in the skin between the nose and lips; and a small mouth with a high, curved roofing of the mouth. Other features that may occur in Sheldon-Hall syndrome consist of added folds of skin on the neck and short stature.
