Font Size A A A Definition of Clinodactyly Clinodactyly: Curving of the fifth finger (the little finger) toward the fourth finger (the ring finger). Sometimes called "…fifth finger clinodactyly" to distinguish it from similar curving of other finger or toes. Clinodactyly is a minor congenital malformation (birth defect). The basis for the clinodactyly is that the middle bone in the fifth finger is underdeveloped and, instead of being rectangular, is wedge- shaped. Clinodactyly may occur as an isolated finding in a person who is entirely normal or it may be found in association with other congenital malformations and, sometimes, mental retardation. It is a common component of Down (trisomy 21) syndrome and Klinefelter (XXY) syndrome. No treatment is required for clinodactyly. "Clinodactyly" is derived from the Greek "klinein" (to bend, slope or incline) and "dactylos" (finger, toe). Other English words formed from "klinein" include "clinocephaly" (a condition that causes skull depression or flatness) and "clinophobia" (fear of going to bed--that is, to bend the head to a pillow.) Other English words formed from "dactylos" include "dactylogram" (fingerprint) and "dactylography" (the study of fingerprints).

I wear my pinky ring on my left hand. Others wear it on the right hand. Any significance depends where you are and the beliefs at the time.
Torn ligaments are repaired surgically. The other option is to try and become accustomed to the reduced level of activity.. To treat in the field, immobilze the extremity, an…d raise about the level of the heart. You can immobilize a pinkie most effectively by gently taping it to the ring finger or, if you need to, you can splint it in position. A tongue depressor works well. Be sure to pad the splint.. Patient comfort is critical in splinting and immobilizing limbs (because their pain can mean you're doing it wrong and perhaps doing more damage). Make sure, when immobilizing, you're improving the situation and not making it worse -- pain will be your guide.. After any taping, always make sure you haven't compromised circulation. Check the tip of the pinkie to see if it's white, purple or cold. If it's healthily warm and pink, good job.
I read in freshman biology that it is recessive. According to Barry Starr, Stanford University geneticist, bent pinky is a dominant trait.
There is generally no significance to wearing a ring on the pinky finger other than a fashion statement, but, in some cases a person may wear a small ring that has sentiment o…n their pinky finger simply because it is too small to wear on their ring finger.
Well this depends if it's a disease or sickness. Usually, if the blood from your hand doesnt go through your veins, then they fall asleep, and they may feel like 'pins and nee…dles'. If the numbness doesn't go away in the next 24 hours, I suggest you go to a doctor.
A Pinkie Ring is worm on the little finger of either hand.
Not everyones pinkies are crooked. Mine and my other immediate family members are straight. It's a DNA thing. It's hereditary.

Lack of circulation most likely. Try to drink more water and excersise your fingers. I have no information of your medical history so I couldn't give you any advice. Consult y…our physician.
