thumbs/fingers in childhood are rare pathological conditions
of hands. Usually the abnormalities are not seen at
birth, but parents notice the abnormal fingers at early
childhood. Most of the cases found are at 2-3 years
of age. The thumbs are predominant than others fingers.
Some have involvement of both thumbs, symmetrically,
and some have involvement of more than two fingers.
Percutaneous release under local anesthesia was done
to 26 children (14 boys, 12 girls) of 35 fingers (26
thumbs, 6 middle fingers, 3 ring fingers). All cases
were satisfied with the result as to reverse the abnormality
of fingers and perform normal hand function.
