Fingers come in: many shapes and sizes and differences are not usually representative of a syndrome. A medical history, pictures of the fingers and any other genetic or congenital disorders may help to narrow it down. But a lot of people should look no further than relatives to see fingers like their own. There is a large spectrum of what is "normal" www.healthtap.com/dr-wint
