Split-hand/split-foot malformation (SHFM), also known as ectrodactyly is a rare genetic condition characterized by malformation of the limbs with median clefts of the hands and feet and aplasia/hypoplasia of the phalanges, metacarpals, and metatarsals. It has a prevalence of 1:10,000-1:90,000 worldwide. It can occur as an isolated malformation or in combination with other anomalies, such as tibial aplasia, craniofacial defects, genitourinary abnormalities, and deafness. SHFM is a rare congenital anomaly. When present as an isolated anomaly, it is usually inherited as an autosomal dominant form. We report a rare case of SHFM with sensorineural hearing loss.
