Radial club hand is characterized by radial deviation of the hand, as a result of hypoplasia or absence of the radius.

Material and methods:

A descriptive, retrospective, cross-sectional and observational study of active patients diagnosed with radial club hand at the Shriners-Mexico Hospital was carried out.


We studied 71 patients and 92 limbs, the prevalence was 0.08%, 64.7% were men and 35.3% women. We observed 22 patients with involvement of the right thoracic extremity, 28 left and 21 bilateral. It was found that 93% of the patients had an associated syndrome. The most common type of radial longitudinal dysplasia was type 1. 58 limbs did not have a thumb. The State of Mexico is the most affected and 91.6% had a guardian with maximum high school education.
