Description

A hereditary polydactyl in a mouse provides an opportunity to study the effects of this malformation on the surrounding morphological structures and, specifically, on the volar pads, the sites over which the dermatographic patterns develop. In view of the similarities in the morphology and foetal development of human and mouse hands/feet, the study is relevant to human subjects, particulary to the understanding of the significance of dermatoglypic variations in individuals with specific medical disorders. International contributors from Canada, Croatia, Cuba, India, Italy, Japan, Mongolia, Portugal, Spain, the United States and Venezuela expand dermatoglphic knowledge into areas of gene marker determination and populational analysis.
