Abstract
Cleft foot and hand (Split or Lobster foot and hand) or Partial Adactyly is a rare inherited anomaly in which a single cleft extends proximally into the foot or hand. There is failure of development of the central digital rays of hand or foot to a variable extent. It is characterised by hypoplasia/ aplasia of the phalanges, toes, metacarpals and metatarsals. The presentation may be an isolated anomaly or associated with a syndrome. It usually occurs in conjunction with clawing of the hand. We report a case of bilateral cleft feet and cleft hands with triphalangeal thumbs, as such cases are rare to come across.
