Ballard syndrome is characterized by hypoplasia of the distal phalanges of the ulnar side of the hand and shortening of one or more metacarpals. In contrast to brachydactyly type E, patients with Ballard syndrome have normal stature.
The syndrome has been described in 12 members from four generations of one family.
Transmission appears to be autosomal dominant.
