Incomplete Separation

Moles Between Toes

Figure 1.67. Partial cutaneous syndactyly represents an incomplete separation of the fingers and occurs most commonly between the third and fourth fingers and between the second and third toes. Syndactyly is the most frequent form of hand anomaly. It is often bilateral and may be combined with Polydactyly, congenital finger amputations, and syndromes. Syndactyly refers to fusion of the soft tissues without synostosis (bony fusion). If there is synostosis, the term symphalangism is used.
