  • [Real macrodactylia affecting the nerves]. [Case Reports]
    Pan Afr Med J 2018; 31:61Nasri S, Amer AO, … Skiker I
  • Real macrodactylia is a rare congenital abnormality of unknown etiology, characterized by excessive growth of the anatomical structures of one or several rays of the hand. It is usually isolated and causes a fibrofatty infiltration mainly involving the palm. It can be caused by embryonic or neurogenic abnormalities with or without nerve involvement according to whether macrodactylia has led to an…
  • [Complex management of macrodactylia of the hand: between aesthetic and functional prejudice]. [Case Reports]
    Pan Afr Med J 2018; 30:45Ejjiyar M, Ettalbi S
  • Macrodactylia is a rare congenital malformation of unknown origin that can affect the fingers or the toes. It is characterized by an increase in the size of all the elements of one or more rays, recognizable at birth or occurring in a progressive manner. Social, aesthetic as well as functional impact imposes early surgical management or even amputations in advanced forms. We report the case of a …
  • Microarray‑based identification of nerve growth‑promoting genes in neurofibromatosis type I. [Journal Article]
    Mol Med Rep 2014; 9(1):192-6Liu Y, Kang D, … Wang J
  • As a genetic disease, neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is characterized by abnormalities in multiple tissues derived from the neural crest, including neoplasms in the ends of the limbs. The exact mechanism of nerve growth in NF1 is unclear. In the present study, the gene expression profile of nerves in healthy controls and NF1 patients with macrodactylia of the fingers or toes were analyzed in orde…
  • Macrodactylia fibrolipomatosis presenting as a small bowel obstruction. [Case Reports]
    South Med J 2010; 103(3):248-9Kenkare S, Ainapurapu B
  • A patient presented with progressive abdominal distention, discomfort, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. The patient also had congenital macrodactyly of the third, fourth, and fifth digits of the left hand. He [corrected] was diagnosed with macrodactylia fibrolipomatosis with multiple small bowel lipomas and complete small bowel obstruction. Macrodactylia fibrolipomatosis is a rare condition ch…
  • [Fibrolipomatous hamartoma of the median nerve: case report]. [Case Reports]
    Arq Neuropsiquiatr 2005; 63(3B):881-4Lorenzoni PJ, Lange MC, … Werneck LC
  • Fibrolipomatous hamartoma is a rare benign neoplasm that in some cases is associated with macrodactylia. We describe a 31-year-old man who had a tissue enlargement in the wrist, second and third fingers of the left hand since infancy. At 23-years-old he began with continuous, progressive and high intensity pain that occurred more frequently at night, localized in the left hand. It was associated …
  • Progressive pedal macrodactyly surgical history with 15 year follow-up. [Case Reports]
    Foot Ankle Int 2000; 21(1):45-50Sobel E, Giorgini RJ, … Chieco TM
  • Macrodactyly can affect the fingers and/or toes1. Histopathologic examination will distinguish macrodactylia fibrolipomatosis or neural fibrolipoma with macrodactyly, from macrodactylia as a part of neurofibromatosis. Surgical repair is aimed at decreasing the size of the affected foot so it is as near in size and shape to the normal foot as possible. Surgical approaches have included reconstruct…
