A 2-year-old male child presented with bilateral asymmetric cleft hands, a right monodactylous foot (diastatic type), posteriorly dislocated at the ankle joint, and a left monodactylous foot (Type VI, Blauth and Borisch) posteriorly dislocated at the ankle joint. Surgical management has enabled weight bearing and walking. Psychological problems, especially with the hands, are anticipated. Further multidisciplinary management by surgeons, physical therapists, clinical psychologists, child psychologists, and occupational therapists is advocated.
