Figure 4.31. Note the single palmar crease in this infant with trisomy 18. A single palmar crease is a common finding in normal infants and is also noted in numerous syndromes. Note the lack of development of other dermal creases, indicating that there was a lack of fetal movement from early in gestation. In this infant there is an absence of finger creases on all fingers. In trisomy 18 it is not uncommon to have an absence of distal creases on the fifth finger (clinodactyly) and less commonly on the fourth and third fingers.
