Distal Arthrogryposis Type 1

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 03 May 2022

Distal arthrogryposis type 1 is a disorder characterized by joint deformities that limit movement in the hands and feet. The characteristic features of this condition consist of permanently bent fingers and toes, overlapping fingers, and a hand deformity in which every one of the fingers are tilted external toward the fifth finger. Clubfoot, which is an internal- and upward-turning foot, is generally seen with distal arthrogryposis type 1. The specific hand and foot problems differ among affected individuals.
