HUMAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) is downloaded weekly from http://compbio.charite.de/hudson/job/hpo/lastStableBuild/artifact/ontology/release/hp.obo. The file downloaded is considered the "last stable build" available for the ontology. For more about the HPO, view their website at http://www.human-phenotype-ontology.org/.

Term:Short metacarpal

Accession:HP:0010049 term browser browse the term
Definition:Diminished length of one or more metacarpal bones in relation to the others of the same hand or to the contralateral metacarpal.
Comment:Short metacarpals can involve any of the metacarpal bones, and the affected ray should be specified. The assessment of isolated short metacarpal can be made by viewing the dorsum of the hand when clenched. Note that if metacarpals F2-5 are affected, the correct term is Short palm.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Brachymetacarpalia;   Hypoplastic metacarpal;   Metacarpal hypoplasia;   Short metacarpals;   Shortened long bone of hand;   Shortened long bones of hand;   Shortened metacarpals;   Shortening of metacarpals
