People With 24 Fingertips – Polydactyliy
Yoandri Hernandez Garrido, 37, happily showcases their 12 fingertips in Baracoa, Guantanamo state, Cuba. Their problem, named polydactyly, is fairly usual, but it is unusual for additional digits becoming very great.
Polydactyly or polydactylism (from historical Greek (polus) "many" + (daktulos) "finger"), also referred to as hyperdactyly, was a congenital bodily anomaly in human beings, canines, and kittens creating fingers that are supernumerary feet. Polydactyly could be the contrary of oligodactyly (less fingertips or feet).
