Fingers Or Toes That Are Attached Or Attached To Each Other?
Can these physical disabilities be passed on to their children/offspring?
Hello, thanks for your question.
Fingers or toes that stick or stick together are called syndactyly. This disorder occurs in about 1 in 2,500 births. This disorder tends to occur in baby boys than baby girls. Syndactyly is the most common malformation in the limbs.
Syndactyly occurs in organ formation, where the fingers fail to separate due to errors in programmed cell death. This is caused by genetic mutations and environmental influences during pregnancy, for example exposure to certain toxins (poisons) or pollutants during pregnancy.
Syndactyly that occurs due to genetic disorders can be passed on to offspring. Children who have one parent with syndactyly have a 50 percent risk of inheriting the disorder. Syndactyly can be corrected by surgical procedures. If you need more detailed information about syndactyly, don't hesitate to consult a doctor directly.
That's the information I can give, hopefully it's useful.
