Why is my pinky finger bent? (camptodactyly)

Post  Parender on Sun May 22, 2011 7:22 am

Why is my pinky finger bent?

There are many different causes of this condition, with the primary cause being ligaments and contracted tendons in the finger. While this is the most common cause, it is not the only cause. In some cases of people who have bent fingers, the muscles grew abnormally, or the bones were shaped irregularly as they grew.

There could be numerous other causes for a bent pinky finger, from previous injury to an inherited trait. Many people only notice their pinky fingers are bent, or slightly crooked, when they hold their fingers side by side and survey them. Sometimes, this bending is attributed to the ring finger, as well. If you’ve ever had your fingers slammed in a car door or other trauma before you were fully grown, this could be the cause of your bent pinkies. Because the bones were subjected to trauma, but not broken, they grew at an angle, which could results in the appearance of having bent pinkies.

If childhood trauma is not the source of bent pinkies, then it is likely that the condition has been inherited either from parents, or even grandparents. This condition is known as camptodactyly.

Camptodactyly can lead to Autism.Camptodactyly is a medical condition involving fixed flexion deformity of the interphalangeal joints of the little finger. This involves permanent flexion of one or more phalanges of fingers.

In other words camptodactyly is a medical term which is applied to any deformity in the fingers. Some people have middle fingers which are slightly crooked, while others have pinkies which are bent. Depending on the severity of the condition, some people might not be able to fully extend their pinkies. It is found in more than 80% of Autistic kids who have one or more phalanges of fingers especially on little fingers. That means a psychiatric disorder marked by deficits in communication and social interaction. The curved 5th finger towards thumb or ring finger reveals presence of autism in a person.

Is a bent pinky finger hereditary?

Yes it is hereditary. It is a matter of gene. For the most part I believe it’s hereditary. If your pinky fingers are not perfectly straight, this could mean that you do possess the ancestor’s trait and thus passed it onto your son. Some persons try to erase the ancestor’s trait and get their bent fingers straight by performing an operation on it. They can do it and as a result they can save the trouble and botheration or hard time that they might feel while driving long distances and writing with a pencil or pen with a bent little finger. But, they cannot hide their ancestor’s trait in them. We are what we are; surgery isn’t going to change the ancestor’s trait in us.

Hello Parender,

Thank you for your post! Thumbs up!


PS. I have split this post from the topic where you posted it, because it deserves to be a topic on it's own.


One additional thought:

I would like to add here that 'clinodactlyly' in the pinky finger is much more often seen in autism than 'camptodactlyly' (partly because 'clinodactly' is much more common than 'camptodactyly', but I think the link between 'camptodactly' and autism is only related to some specified syndromes which are sometimes featured with autism).

Hi Parender,
I like your post.
"But, they cannot hide their ancestor's trait in them."

It is fascinating how these physical attributes along with their psychological counterparts get passed down through the generations. Epigenetics explains that not only are these genes passed down, but each individual adds their own unique environmental reactions (physical, mental and emotional) to their genes that are passed down to their own children.

Some 'conscious' offspring of this gene pool may rise above or change their state of being and 'heal' the out-of-balance gene sequence/code. Then the "ancestor's trait" as you say, may disappear in future generations or appear infrequently.

I do not understand what is being said, but the body language is certainly interesting to watch. I can tell he is the 'story teller', smooth, compelling, convincing speech. The interviewer for quite some part of the video keeps his arms crossed across his body with palms rarely open. Seldom opening any 'soft side' to Irfan Khoosat. The main time he did open up and reach forward, the next clip of Irfan showed him with his hands before his mouth in a form of prayer.

One of the successful qualities of an actor is to take on a role and play it convincingly. This would mean also the ability to deny for that time their own natural self and become the character for the role. Perhaps a side effect of this 'talent' is also the grey areas where real life and professional life blend.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the beautiful analysis.

You are perfectly right and here he is telling a story about a visit to a holy place in Saudi Arabia in the start. His father was also an actor. The host of the program was in a close and defensive position may be because he found Irfan Khoosat better actor than him.rolling on the floor

Hi Parender,
Thanks, as Patti says, for such an interesting post.
Could you tell me, I work with a girl who has two bent pinkies, both bending toward the palm and her handwriting is dreadful, most times illegible. Do you think this is because of her bent pinkies.

Hi Jeanette,

O Great! Thanks for liking my post. You are welcome!

Yes, I think that this is so because of her bent pinkies; because a person with bent little finger could have a hard time during writing normal with a pencil or pen. Griping them is hard work for them. She would find it hard while driving long distances too.

There is no harm in having bent pinkies unless they are so severely bent that it makes daily tasks near impossible. In this case, surgery may be performed in order to correct the problem. In mild cases, no treatment is needed, as it does not affect the quality of life.
Yes, she might have the dominant gene.

Hi Patti,
O Great! Thanks for liking the post! You are welcome!

The best rough estimation of the condition is around one percent of the total general population seems to be affected with this condition each year.

What little information is known about the condition has shown that it appears to be more frequent with females than males. In addition, children have been observed as growing up to have bent pinky fingers, when no other immediate family members had the condition. While this may seem like camptodactyly is a random condition, it has been shown that parents who have some form of bent pinkies or other fingers are more likely to give birth to children with the same condition.

"Bent pinky" shows there are much chances of having an autosomal dominant gene in the person. It means the person only need to get the abnormal gene from one parent in order for him to inherit the disease; meaning that one of the parents may often have the disease.

Hi Parender,
Thanks very much for the reply. It is so interesting as you also mentioned driving, as a few years ago she bought a car, took some driving lessons and a family friend was taking her out in his car, but she gave up. She just said she thought she wasn't suited for driving. I feel sorry about her handwriting as the job involves a lot of writing and the boss is always complaing to her about it.

I was just wondering if it is worth mentioning, this girl has only a sister and the sister has a hair lip.
