Abstract

Although congenital hand anomalies associated with finger nubbins may be produced by amniotic band disruption sequence (ABDS), symbrachydactyly should be considered in the differential diagnosis. ABDS usually affects more than one limb but symbrachydactyly largely is limited to one upper extremity, and has five distinct clinical presentations: short-fingered, atypical cleft, monodactylous, peromelic, and a forearm proximal transverse deficiency. This article discusses the diagnosis of symbrachydactyly compared with ABDS and outlines plans for managing patients with symbrachydactyly.
