Also known as: Madelung deformity
Madelung's deformity is a condition where the wrist joint is not properly aligned such that the hand develops a deviation over time.
The cause of Madelung's deformity isn’t exactly clear. It appears to be due to a genetic mutation. This may occur as an isolated deformity of as a part of an underlying syndrome. An abnormal growth plate or thickened ligament may cause the malalignment to occur.
The malalignment of the wrist joint is visible, and it can cause pain and decreased range of motion.
Minor cases of Madelung's deformity do not require treatment. In more severe cases, surgery to correct the deformity may be necessary.
