WHAT IS IT? Brachydact­yly

- Assisted by Hajni Domokos

In Greek, brachydact­yly means “short digits” (fingers and toes). It’s a congenital condition where a person’s fingers and toes are much shorter than average, particular­ly when compared to the size of their body.

There are many types of brachydact­yly affecting different fingers and toes.

For most people, brachydact­yly won’t have an effect on their everyday life.
