What is Clinodactyly?

Description of the disease

Clinodactyly is a congenital or acquired condition characterized by the curvature or deformation of the fingers or toes. As a result of such deformation, the fingers may have a claw-like shape or be flattened.


  • Clinodactyly of the fingers
  • Clinodactyly of the toes


Symptoms of clinodactyly can vary depending on the severity of the condition, but may include finger deformity, limited mobility, and pain.


The causes of clinodactyly can be genetic, environmental, or other internal factors that affect the development of the fetal fingers in the womb.


Diagnosis of clinodactyly may include visual examination, X-rays, and genetic testing to determine the presence of a hereditary factor.


Treatment of clinodactyly may include conservative methods such as physical therapy, or surgical intervention to correct the deformation.


Since genetic factors may be the cause of clinodactyly, prevention is limited to genetic counseling for couples planning pregnancy.


Treatment of clinodactyly is carried out by an orthopedic surgeon or a surgeon specializing in limb pathology.
