Polydactyly - Extra Fingers

This again is a common birth difference seen in children. When the extra finger is attached by a small tag of skin, and the other fingers are normal, the removal of the extra finger is a minor procedure. Sometimes the finger may be attached to the normal fingers at the level of the joint. The two fingers then share a common joint cavity. In such instances after removal of the extra finger the joint is reconstructed to retain the stability.
