Poland’s syndrome is an entity characterized by the absence of the pectoralis major and/or minor muscle, syndactyly, brachydactyly, breast abnormalities such as athelia or amastia, costocondral deformities or agenesis, the absence of the hair in the axillary region and the reduction of subcutaneous fatty tissue. In this article, we report a 25-years-old male case who has the classical signs of Poland’s syndrome together with isolated dextrocardia which was seen rarely and scoliosis which was seen for first time in the literature.
