Night, want to ask about Simian Line. Incidentally my child Simian Line in both hands, I searched on Google about Simian Line. Do you think what is explained by the real articles on Google, about the peculiarities / privileges of people with the Simian Line? Thanks

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The palm of a person's hand has three large folds:

Folds distal or 'away from the torso'
Proximal or 'near torso' folds
Thenar folds or those that form clearly when the thumb is moved


People with fused proximal and distal folds are said to have STPC / Single transverse palmar crease or what is called simian line / crease, as shown in the figure.


The occurrence of this condition is still unknown until now and does not cause any health problems for most people.


Regarding your question, people who have this line do not have any privileges, but there are several disorders that are associated with the appearance of this line, including:

Down syndrome
Fetal alcohol syndrome
Aarskog syndrome


Which of these three syndromes is a congenital disorder that makes a person have certain disorders at birth. The existence of the simian line does not necessarily become the basis for a person's diagnosis for having this disorder because the simian line can also be found in normal people. So that if the health and development of your child has been fine, the existence of the simian line has no meaning. So, hopefully it answers your question.
