This rare condition in humans is caused due to mutations in the WNT3 gene. The mutation prevents cells from producing functional WNT3 protein, which disrupts normal limb formation. The mutation is also known to cause some other serious birth defects associated with tetraamelia syndrome. As per a 2011 study the syndrome occurs in roughly 1 out of every 71,000 pregnancies.
