What is Polydactyly of a biphalangeal thumb?

Polydactyly of a biphalangeal thumb or PPD1 is the most common form of preaxial polydactyly of fingers (see this term), a limb malformation syndrome, that is characterized by the duplication of one or more skeletal components of a biphalangeal thumb. Hands are preferentially affected (in bilateral), and the right hand is more commonly involved than the left.
