Growth Plate Issue??

We are a little concerned because we just discovered something not quite right in Morgan's hand.























Here are some quick photos of Morgans shortened finger and lack of knuckle where one should be. (There is a knuckle but it doesn't seem to be working along with the other knuckles in the same hand.

We started wondering if she had some kind of growth plate injury long ago (that we were unaware of) and are just now noticing something is up. Maybe it's just dislocated. We found nothing googling and will be calling the doctor on Monday.

Hello, I found your blog and thought I would comment. My 14 yr old daughter has the same issue with both her hands. Our doctors haven't offered much info and don't see concerned about it. I haven't heard of any one else having this issue until now. If you find out any more info as to why or how this occurs please email me. dmoynih1@twcny.rr.com Thank you!

We were told it is just a congenital abnormality and as long as it doesn't bother her we don't need to do anything about it. :)
