How common is camptodactyly?

Camptodactyly affects about 1 percent of children. It occurs more often in girls than boys.

What are the symptoms of camptodactyly?

If the case is mild, your child won’t have any symptoms. His finger (probably the little one) will be slightly curved, but it won’t affect his hand function in any way.

If your child has a more severe case, it could slightly affect his hand function.

Keep in mind that camptodactyly also can also occur as part of an underlying syndrome with associated facial, dental other systemic anomalies.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
