Brachydactyly Type D Hand M

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see shortening of the distal phalanx of the thumb. The other fingers have normal proportions. This pattern strongly sustains the diagnosis of brachydactyly type D described further in the Diagnosis Gallery. This illustration also provides a basis for “Clinical Notes and Points”.
