Brachymetacarpia is a rare congenital presentations denoted by shortening of metacarpals in which the deformity usually presents around childhood/early adolescence. It is caused when the growth plate of the metacarpal closes early, resulting in premature stoppage of growth. This can be a congenital condition or can be an acquired deformity following trauma, infection, tumor, radiation, or prior surgery.
