The two-toed Wadoma--familial ectrodactyly in Zimbabwe.


Ectrodactyly has been referred to as being present among the Wadoma people of Zimbabwe for many years and has given rise in popular imagination to the legend of 'the two-toed people'. An investigation into this situation is reported in which three members of one Wadoma family are described. Reference is made to reports of a similar condition occurring in a group of people who may be ethnically related to the Wadoma living on either side of the Botswana/Zimbabwe border, who have not, as far as is known, been scientifically assessed.
