Dr. Tanya Russo answered

Single palmar crease: Single palmar creases are believed to develop around 12 weeks gestation. Any insult to the developing fetus can produce these creases and associated neurologic defects. Single palmar creases are most commonly associated with Down's Syndrome, but can also be associated with a number of other genetic defects, neurologic disorders and possibly Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
