Congenital deformities of the limbs occur sporadically in various species, but the cause is often unclear. The clinically healthy female Brown Swiss calf presented here showed a congenital peromelia of the left hind limb. The affected limb is twisted, disproportional and the bones distally of the metatarsus are missing. Karyotyping and genome sequencing did not indicate on a genetic cause of the anomaly. An infection with the Schmallenberg virus could not be ruled out. Furthermore, there was no evidence of further adverse environmental effects during pregnancy.
