Why do physicians check the palmar lines of newborn babies?

Why do physicians check the hand lines of newborn babies?

Most newborns have two major creases on the palm, neither of which completely extend from one side of the palm to the other. However, a common variant, found in approximately 4% of western newborns, a transverse palmar crease is frequently inherited as a familial trait. Although single palmar creases are also associated with the hand in Down syndrome and other genetic disorders, the absence of other abnormalities on physical exam should reassure the examiner that no further evaluation is necessary.

A report about the significance of the palmar lines in newborns, including two interesting 2010 reports which suggests that hand lines + hand circumference correlate with 'hand grip strength'!

Thank you for this report Martijn! Thumbs up!

It came in a very timely manner for me, since a friend of mine has recently given birth to a healthy baby boy with bilateral simian lines. How fascinating to think that he is one of only 1%!
