Dolichostenomelia; Spider fingers; Achromacria
Arachnodactyly is a physical condition in which the fingers are long, slender, and curved, resembling a spider's legs.
Long, slender fingers can be normal and not associated with any medical problems. In some cases, however, spider fingers can be a sign of an underlying disease.
Note: Having long, slender fingers may be normal.
