Would Celebrities Megan Fox Thumbs Pictures
Posted by Come Back
The medical term for Megan Fox's ever so slightly misshapen thumb is brachydactyly, which is basically a fancy word for a clubbed thumb, according to local hand surgeons.
"Literally, what it means is short finger," says Dr. Steven Bendner, a hand surgeon at Beth Israel Medical Center. "The nail of the thumb in this condition is often very short and wide." Though the thumb is certainly not what most people are looking at when they look at Fox, it's worth noting that her condition is often inherited, doctors say.
"It is usually hereditary," Beldner explains. "Although it could also have been caused by frostbite, or it could have been an injury to the growth plate in childhood."
Though it's much less noticeable when a child is young, the condition becomes more visible during growth and maturity. About 1 in 1,000 people has the condition, Beldner says.
Dr. Richard Kim, director of congenital hand surgery at Hackensack Medical Center, notes that the thumb is the most important finger of all.
"You need it to be able to touch the other fingers and it is important for pinching," he says. "In Megan Fox's case, it appears that only the last bone of the thumb is affected and that it does not involve the joint. For her, it looks like it's just a cosmetic deficit."
In some cases, people with clubbed thumbs often have the same condition with their toes.
