Screening of families with BDA2 Author: Stefan Mundlos. is a platform for academics to share research papers. J.L. Merritt II, in Reference Module in Life Sciences, Isolated Brachydactyly. Most forms of isolated brachydactyly have only been reported in a single family or few families, so they are generally thought to be rare with a prevalence of about 2%. The exceptions are type A3, which has been reported from 3 to 21% in a Japanese population, and type D, which has been reported up to 4% in.   A family with brachydactyly type E. 1A: Pedigree showing the affected subjects: II-4, III-1, III-2 and IV-1 are affected by brachydactyly, even if the expression is different. 1B-1C: subject II-4 has apparently normal carpals, brachymetatarsia of the fourth metatarsal, clinodactyly of fourth and fifth toes.

  Brachydactyly is an inherited condition, which makes genetics the main cause. If you have shortened fingers or toes, other members of your family most likely also have the condition. Brachydactyly is often inherited, and similar digit patterns may be seen among family members. How is it diagnosed? There are 5 main types of brachydactyly, types A through E. The type A group of brachydactyly is subdivided into subgroups.   As stated above, Brachydactyly is a condition that is inherited meaning that there is a genetic cause to this condition. 2 This also means that there will also be other members of the family who will have the same condition that is of having short fingers or toes. In some cases, brachydactyly may also present as a symptom of some other inherited condition which will have their own symptoms .   In a family with a history of brachydactyly, the condition can pop up quite a lot, because it is a dominant trait, and it can also mutate, changing from generation to generation. A history of the condition does not necessarily indicate a predisposition for other health problems, and if both parents are free of the condition, the child should be.

In the Canadian family, they assigned the BDB locus to an cM interval on 9q (lod score at theta = for marker D9S). Brachydactyly or short digit is a rare deformity involving fingers and toes. We present a rare family with 6 known members affected with similar pattern of brachydactyly, affecting only bilateral. I have this so called "clubbed thumbs"also known as brachydactyly. It is of D-type. I searched for it on internet and found that it is a dominant inherited disease. But to my surprise,none of my family members have such even my great grandfather/mother had this type of thumbs.
