Abstract:   (70 Views)
Polydactyly is a congenital anomaly with a wide range of manifestations that occurs in many forms, ranging from varying degrees of mere splitting to completely duplicated thumb. When duplication occurs alone, it is usually unilateral and sporadic. In this case report, I report left hand polydactyly with 2 more fingers on 5th finger in a 6 month old male. He subsequently underwent surgical correction, and the over number thumb was removed with associated meticulous skeletal and soft tissue reconstruction. Polydactyly is the most common congenital digital anomaly of the hand and foot. It can occur in isolation or as part of a syndrome. Surgery is necessary to create a single, functioning thumb indicated to improve cosmetics. Skin, nail, bone, ligament, and musculoskeletal elements must be combined to reconstruct an optimal digit. Treatment options of polydactyly depend on the type and the underlying features. In the literature, different surgical treatments for lateral and medial polydactyly are described.
