Larsen syndrome is a rare congenital osteochondrodysplasia resulting in multiple joint dislocations and typical facial features. The inheritance pattern can be autosomal dominant or recessive, with the recessive pattern being more severe. This condition requires prolonged orthopaedic treatment and achievement of complete normal function is unlikely. We hereby present a case report of this syndrome which was diagnosed by clinical examination and radiological findings.
