Fingers, Overlapping

Objective: A finger resting on the dorsal surface of an adjacent digit when the hand is at rest


This descriptor is ordered depending on which digits are involved (see figure legend for examples). The affected digits should be specified. The ordering of the numbers specifies which digit is dorsal, that is, with dorsum of the hand facing upward the digit on top is/are recorded first separated by a comma from the digit that is/are overlapped. Fingers that are laterally deviated, but do not rest on top of adjacent fingers should be coded as Clinodactyly.
