  • Polydactyly (extra fingers and toes)

    Hi, I was born in Glasgow in 1961 with 12 toes. My father also had 12 toes. Unfortunately, I have no concrete information of any of his siblings or parents etc. were also born with this condition. I have gave birth to a daughter and 2 sons, who have all been born 12 toes, and 2 of them also had 12 fingers. All extra digits have been removed. My elder sister who did not have this condition all had 3 children, of which 2 of them had extra digits, one male and one female. My niece has had 2 boys and a girl, and they also have all been born with polydactyly.

    I would love to try and find which branch of my grand-parents this has derived from - Miller or Slimon both from Lanarkshire/Glasgow areas.

    Is there anyone out there who is related with this condition, or it would be really interesting to have contact with anyone who is not related and has the condition.
