Amazing! Rest of the hand normal- like it had been severed.

What part of the world of this pt from?
I'm fascinated by this pts hands and feet. I've never seen anything like this before. I'd be quite curious to see how they function with their hands and how their gait is.
I would love to see an xray

The symmetry of this deformity is amazing

I'm used to seeing it looking more lobster-y (like the feet) -- how the hands are affected is really unusual!!!
I knew a family who had this. The mother did not have it, but dad did, and all three kids were born with it. Gait was normal in them you'd never know if you didn't see their hands and feet ever.
