The rare congenital condition Larsen syndrome is frequently accompanied by dysmorphic features, severe joint dislocations, equinovarus or equinovalgus foot abnormalities, and different hand anomalies, such as extra carpal bones. The authors present a case of Larsen syndrome where the only clinical symptom was bilateral supernumerary carpal bones. The new case represents a unique presentation of this condition, lacking all of the key clinical symptoms previously recorded in the literature, according to a study of the literature on skeletal anomalies in patients with Larsen syndrome. It is explained how to treat patients who have extra carpal bones.
