Abstract

Triplication of the thumb is a rare condition described only in several case reports. Radial longitudinal deficiency is a relatively more common entity. These 2 congenital abnormalities generally do not occur within the same extremity. We present a patient with a combination of 3 thumbs (triplication of the thumb) and hypoplastic radius in the same limb.
