Tetrapolydactyly is a very rare form of polydactyly –common congenital anomaly of the hand or foot. This anomaly is rarest in females. Here, we present an 8 year old girl who presented to the plastic surgery unit of our institution with history of extra digits on the hands and feet since birth. There was no associated pain. Medical attention was not sought at birth, however she presented currently due to cosmetic reason. Tetrapolydactyly was evaluated with plain radiograph and ultrasound.
Key words: tetrapolydactyly, female, radiograph, ultrasound
