General Discussion
Split hand/split foot malformation (SHFM) is a genetic disorder identified by the complete or partial lack of some fingers or toes, often combined with clefts in the hands or feet. There may also be the look of webbing in between fingers or toes (syndactyly). This may give the hands and/or feet a claw-like appearance.

There are many kinds and also combos of defects that show up in split hand/split foot malformation. They vary commonly in intensity, even in participants of the same household. The malformation may happen alone, or it might occur as a component of a syndrome with other characteristics.
