Ectrodactyly refers to the congenital limb malformation, characterized by a deep median cleft of the hand and/or foot due to the absence of central rays. Affected individuals may be recognized by a lobster-claw deformity of their limb extremities that causes severe functional disorders. A combination of ectrodactyly, ectodermal dysplasia and cleft (EEC) in the lip or palate is called as EEC syndrome. This paper reports a case of the nonsyn dromic form of ectrodactyly in a 9-year-old girl along with etiological factors and its management.
