About the World of Clubbed Thumbs
“Picking your nails” or “sucking your thumbs when you were little”: some explanations that are popularly given for the trait known as clubbed thumbs.
It wasn’t till I was 25 that I found out that it’s a unique trait, genetically inherited according to scientists, and shared by millions of people. In fact, the scientific term for clubbed thumbs is Brachydactyly type D or ‘BDD’ for short.
This page is dedicated to the unique trait knows as ‘clubbed thumbs’.
This weblog is dedicated to bringing together people with clubbed thumbs (or people who’re interested) to share information, scientific or otherwise, about their thumbs.
