What is polydactyly and what are the causes?

A polydactyly is a congenital condition where a person has more than five fingers or toes. The term comes from the Greek “polys”, meaning many, and “daktus”, meaning “fingers”. Its manifestation can vary from case to case: the extra fingers can be fully developed or they can only have a skin bulge.

Possible causes of polydactyly are related to genetic mutation or a family inheritance. A person who has a parent with the condition has a 50% chance of being born with the condition. Those who have both parents with the anomaly have a 100% chance of being born with extra fingers.
