The treatment of a brachymetacarpia using a distraction osteogenesis was mostly single, unilateral pattern. In case of multiple brachymetacarpia, single-stage lengthening or rapid distraction lengthening with a bone graft were usually used. Multiple brachymetacarpia treated by distraction osteogenesis is rarely reported. We report a case of a 15-year-old female presented with bilateral multiple brachymetacarpia treated by distraction osteogenesis simultaneously without complications. Also, we have evaluated the clinical results and factors which influence the clinical results.
