Prevalence is unknown but the syndrome is very rare with only a few case reports described in the literature.
Additional findings include a thickened and/or duplicated fibula, hand syndactyly, and triphalangeal thumb.
An association with Hirschprung disease has been reported. It is suggested that hypoplastic tibia-polydactyly syndrome and triphalangeal thumb-polysyndactyly syndrome (see this term) may be variants of the same disorder.
Autosomal dominant inheritance has been reported.
