Congenital Hand Deformities

The term congenital hand difference refers to any condition of the hand and arm that is present at birth. Children can be born with many types of hand differences, and they vary greatly in how they impact the appearance and function of the hand.
Congenital hand differences develop early during pregnancy when the baby's upper limbs are first forming. Sometimes, a difference runs in a family or is part of a medical condition. But in many cases, doctors are not able to determine the exact cause for a hand difference.
Some children may need occupational therapy, surgery, or other treatments to function better and be more independent.
