Wikipedia definition
2. PhocomeliaPhocomelia (from Greek φώκη = "seal" plus μέλος = "limb") is an extremely rare congenital disorder involving the limbs. Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire coined the term in 1836. Although various numbers of factors can cause phocomelia, the prominent roots come from the drug use of thalidomide and from genetic inheritance. The occurrence of this malformation in an individual results in various abnormalities to the face, limbs, ears, nose, vessels and many other underdevelopments.
