Ulnar club hand is diagnosed after inspection of the forearm and an x-ray. Your child's doctor will want to check for other congenital deformities or syndromes that are associated with radial club hand.

Further tests may depend on whether the doctor suspects any associated problems, including problems with heart, kidneys, vertebral column, blood cells and digestive system.

In diagnosing the condition, the doctor will want to note the severity and will likely classify it as one of the previously described four types.
