Hand Digit Fingers Dysmorphic

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see a dysmorphic hand (and therefore fingers and nails). it is up to you to name the particular dysmorphic signs. My point is that this right hand has a companion left hand and two feet. Furthermore, all four belong to one patient. This clinical example illustrates several fundamental principles that apply to Clinical Dysmorphology and therefore to Clinical Genetics (and Cytogenetics).

PERSPECTIVE: Please see the comment in this patient’s clinical gallery.
