Localized Gigantism of the Limbs
Localized gigantism frequently manifests as macrodactyly (Fig. 34.1) though the overgrowth is seldom limited to the affected digits of the hand or foot (Fig. 34.2). Macrodactyly has been classified in three ways (De Laurenzi 1962; Temtamy and McKusick 1978; Flatt 1994); each classification has clinical relevance (Table 34.1).
