Abstract

A recent genome-wide association study (GWAS) looking for the genes determining fingerprint and palmar crease patterns disclosed one gene, among many others, which causes lymphedema (CELSR1) while others influencing tissue growth. Since digital fluid influences the height of the volar pads, influences of lymphedema on dermatoglyphics should be sought.

Keywords: dermatoglyphics, dermal ridges, volar pads, lymphedema genes
