Abstract

Summary

The clinical and radiologic spectrum of symbrachydactyly has been extended, on the basis of experimental embryology, into four categories: typical symbrachydactyly, atypical cleft hand, monodactyly, and adactyly. The origin of this embryologic failure is probably a vascular disruption. A series of 64 hands and 3 feet are reported, indicating associated anomalies and possible etiologic features.
