Ectrodactyly: A rare anomaly of limbs
Split-hand/split-foot malformation (SHFM) is a rare congenital malformation of the limbs with median clefts of the hands and feet and aplasia/hypoplasia of the phalanges, metacarpals and metatarsals. When present as an isolated anomaly, it is usually inherited as an autosomal dominant form. We report a case of nonsyndromic form of ectrodactyly because of its rarity.
Key words: Split-hand/split-foot malformation; Nonsyndromic ectrodactyly
