Preaxial polydactyly of the hand is more common than postaxial polydactyly and postaxial polydactyly of the foot is more common than preaxial in white patients. Syndactyly is commonly regarded as next in frequency among the congenital hand deformities. Preaxial polydactyly of the feet and hands and polydactyly type A and B with syndactyly in the same individual is a rare condition. In this work we present this rare disorder in male infant. The physical and X-ray examinations showed preaxial polydactyly type A of both hands and A and B polydactyly with syndactyly of feet.
