There is good evidence from the medical literature that type I syndactyly, the most common form of the nonsyndromic syndactylies, is clinically heterogeneous. The authors therefore propose to group the condition into four subtypes, which are all autosomal dominantly inherited: Subtypes 1-4. These subtypes are described in the published articles in the European Journal of Human Genetics (Vol.13, pp. 1268–1274).
