The authors report on a child with bilateral typical split-hand (ectrodactyly) and tibial aplasia, probably the first Indian report. Minor limb malformations in the maternal side suggests an autosomal dominant inheritance. The clinical spectrum and the inheritance of this malformation are discussed. Prenatal screening in families with such malformations is essential.
