Arachnodactyly, or commonly known as the spider fingers, is a condition wherein an individual has unusually long and thin toes. This condition came from the word “arachnid” since it often resembles the legs of a spider. In addition, the thumbs of the person prefer to pull into the palm. This may be present from birth or adulthood or develop over time.
Furthermore, having long fingers may appear normal. However, for some cases, this can be an indication for an underlying medical disorder. Also, because of its symptoms, many physicians confuse this condition as Marfan syndrome.
