Abstract

Brachydactyly or short digit is a rare deformity involving fingers and toes. We present a rare family with 6 known members affected with similar pattern of brachydactyly, affecting only bilateral index fingers. The knowledge of this entity is important and a thorough clinical and radiological evaluation is mandatory for any patient with digital deformities.
