Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) is third common trisomy and associated with multiple congenital anomalies including limb malformation like polydactyly. However, the presence of ectrodactyly or split-hand and/or foot malformation, a lobster claw-like appearance of the hand and/or foot, which may occur as an isolated entity or as part of a syndrome, in trisomy 13 is uncommon. This is a case report of a rare presentation of trisomy 13 with ectrodactyly or split-hand malformation. To the best of our knowledge, only a few isolated reports of ectrodactyly in trisomy 13 such our patients have been documented in the literature, and this could be one of the few reported cases to show such association.
