Figure 3: T1W coronal image of both the hands shows absence of bilateral flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendons. Normally, FPL tendon is seen between the lateral head of flexor pollicis brevis (FPB) and the oblique head of adductor pollicis brevis (AdPB) muscles, and is inserted into the base of the distal phalanx of thumb (see inset images). Bilateral flexor pollicis brevis (FPB) and abductor pollicis brevis (AbPB) muscles were also absent. Hypoplasia/atrophy of bilateral opponens pollicis (OP) muscles was present. Bilateral AdPB muscles appeared normal in morphology
