Abstract: This communication presents a case of peromelia associated with brachydactyly and hyperphalangism in a newborn female goat. Absence and rudimentary distal phalanx were observed in hands and feet at X-ray examination. According to the Bell's classification [Bell. J., 1951. On brachydactyly and symphalangism. In: Penrose (Ed.), Treasury of Human Inheritance, vol. 5. Oxford University Press, Cambridge, pp. 1-30] the kid goat presented a brachydactyly type B. Karyotype study was only performed in the dam. and no apparent chromosomal aberrations were observed (58 XX). Several drugs or infectious diseases associated with congenital abnormalities were discarded. The farm had not introduced new mates in many years; for that, inbreeding environment and recessive abnormalities could be suspected. To the author's knowledge, the coexistence of such malformations has not been previously described in a goat.
