Camptodactyly is characterized by permanent flexion contracture in the proximal interphalangeal joint. Two forms have been defined; the congenital type seen in the first years of life and the adolescent type seen after 10 years of age and the etiology is unknown. In most cases, involvement is limited to the 5th finger. Although generally sporadic, various rates of autosomal dominant genetic inheritance have been reported. The case is presented here of bilateral camptodactyly in the 4th and 5th fingers of hands.
