A congenital cleft hand is a kind of rare inherited defect in which the central ray of the hand is divided into radial and ulnar components. The atypical cleft hand is the severe type of hand defects in which the malformation includes the metacarpal bone. This type of defect usually shows up with no familial history. On the other hand, the typical cleft hand shows a tendency of familial incidence, often appears bilaterally, and is commonly associated with malformation of both lower limbs, including feet. Here, we report a unusual case of an atypical congenital cleft hand, accompanying an imperforated anus and an ipsilateral radio-ulnar synostosis.
