Default PWS genetics and clinodactyly

Hey everybody:
Actually i've been looking for some information about PWS and genetics. I've found that it is linked to 5th finger clinodactyly. How many of you has that on your hands?

Hi Raul,

I am curious about this topic. I have never heard of it. Do you know if this is liked to KT syndrome? Just in case you do not know to much about KT but am sure you probably do. KT is caused by PWS and effects the arms and legs.
