Congenital Hand Differences


Congenital differences of the hand are physical deformities present at birth that can significantly affect a child's hand function and appearance. These conditions may occur as a result of abnormal development or genetic factors, and can involve fingers that are fused together (syndactyly), an underdeveloped hand (club hand), extra fingers (polydactyly) and other abnormalities. Treatment for congenital deformities varies depending on the type and severity of the deformity, but may include tendon transfers, skin grafts, limb manipulation, external appliances or prosthetic devices to restore function and improve the appearance of the hand.
