Summary

A series of 283 male and 268 female individuals were examined for digital flexion creases on the little fingers. Two males and two females were found to have an extra interphalangeal transverse crease situated between the metacarpophalangeal and proximal interphalangeal creases. The extra crease of the little finger was unilateral or bilateral. None of the little fingers with extra crease had radiographic anomalies of the bones or joints, or evidence of dyskinesia.
