Inherited anomalies of bones and joints of the hands.

++

In 1965, Z. Banki, a Hungarian physician, described the syndrome in three generations of the same Hungarian family. Assumed to be a unique, autosomal dominant inherited mutation.

++

Family members affected with the syndrome demonstrate fusion of the cuneiform and lunate bones of the wrist, clinometacarpia, brachymetacarpia, leptometacarpia, and clinodactyly. No other systemic manifestations of this condition occurred.

Care with positioning of the wrists during anesthesia because of decreased mobility and increased susceptibility of the wrist joints to trauma. Venous access may be difficult in hands.
