Understanding limb related symptoms and features.
Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.
Limbs refer to the arms and legs of the body. They also include the hands and feet connected to the main limbs. Parts of the limbs include the fingers and toes, known as digits.
The limbs are an essential part of many different functions of the body, including movement, feeding and other necessary daily skills. Symptoms and features affecting the development and functioning of the limbs may also impact on these activities as well.
Generally, symptoms affecting the limbs may be seen with the naked eye. Although diagnosing a limb related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.
What are long fingers?
Long fingers are objectively defined by the following criteria - the middle finger measures more than two standard deviations above the mean for newborns aged between 27-41 weeks, or above the 97 percentile for children aged from 0-16 years. In addition to this all five digits of the hand must be relative in length to each other, i.e. one is not longer than the other, or only the middle finger is longer.
The subjective definition of long fingers, are those that seem to be much longer when compared to the palm of the hand.
What should I do next?
In some instances, long fingers may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
