1.Congenital anomalies are deformities that are present at birth. There may be shortening of the bone. This deformity may involve underdevelopment of the ulnar bone. 2. This was an interesting site because it had different examples of my case and some reasons to explain why this happened to my finger.
1.Clinodactyly means that your child has an abnormally bent or curved finger. It is typically caused by abnormal growth and development of the small bones of the finger. It is estimated to affect about 10 percent of the general population to varying degrees. This can be inherited or many people with down syndrome had this. The exact incidence of this condition is unknown, in part because there is no precise definition of what level of curvature is normal and abnormal. It tends to be present more commonly in boys and usually affects the small finger; it is unusual to have it on both hands. 2. This was my favorite because it was short and sweet. It had the exact thing that i was looking for. It hit all my information that I was looking for in a small amount of words.
1.In my personal series of 3006 children with congenital hand abnormalities the third was of the little finger (354 cases). It is the ulnar side of the hand, and usually the little finger, that most commonly shows skeletal and soft tissue change. Clinically, a bending or curvature of the finger in the plane of the palm is described as clinodactyly. There is an enormous lay literature concerning our little fingers.There are even some people who wrote books about this pinkie that bends in towards the hand. Clinodactyly certainly runs in families and probably depends on an autosomal dominant gene. The root cause for the condition is an alteration of alignment of the joint surfaces of either interphalangeal joint away from their normal 90 degrees to the long line of the digit.. 2.This had a lot of good information and the main points were very clear and it gave me wat I was looking for. It looked like a very reliable site.
1.The myth is that little fingers can be clearly divided into two categories, bent and straight. The truth is when the little finger bends in towards the palm and can't be straightened out, it is known as streblomicrodactyly, streblodactyly or camptodactyly. They found that only 4 out of a sample of 4,304 people had what they considered to be bent little fingers. There are many cases where some familys have a couple kids with a deformed pinkys but very few and they found some cases with it being the dominant alles that cause it to show up so much and others it was just a rare case of both being recessive. 2. I picked this site because it sounded a lot like my case and it was a reliable site with knowledgeable information.
