Genetics: The size of our bones is largely determined by out genetics. If small hands is something that runs in your family then it is not surprising that you would have this. Remember it is not the size of your hands that is important but how you use them that counts. Be healthy.

What causes abnormally small hands?

It depends: Small hands can run in your family (check your parents and siblings) and be perfectly functional. Sometimes, small hand or fingers can be part of a syndrome or congenital hand difference. It's best to be evaluated by a hand specialist, especially if it's a child, if there is a concern.

Are really small hands a sign of anything?

Are really small hands a sign of anything?

No syndrome: There are no syndromes known to me where the only finding is one of small hands. I would ask your doctor to look you over closely for any other anatomic findings out of the norm. If you have no other findings on exam, then you have small hands and that's it. That can certainly happen and would be totally normal! !

What disease causes freakishly small hands and freakishly large ears?
