Hand Charts for Congenital Rubella Syndrome!

Congenital rubella syndrome (prenatal rubella syndrome) can occur in a developing fetus of a pregnant woman who has contracted rubella, usually in the first trimester. The classic triad for congenital rubella syndrome includes: sensorineural deafness, congenital heart disease, eye abnormalities, combined with a range of health- and/or psychological issues.

Prevalence: estimated at 1 in 100,000 people.

One rather superficial hand chart is available for congenital rubella syndrome describing only 4 characteristics in the dermatoglyphics, involving: 1) increased whorl pattern, 3) increased atd angle (axial triradius at t'), 3) reduced ab ridge count, 4) simian crease - see picture below.


NOTICE: Individual hand features described below should not get associated in isolation with any theme; only combinations involving multiple hand levels have potential for diagnostic purposes.

Hand chart source:
Handbook of Clinical Dermatoglyphs (1971), p.46;

Other significant hand signs (not reported inside the hand charts):

The hand-wagging phenomenon: due to eye defects or -abnormalities, the infant directs his head at the light and passes his hand before his eyes (source: V. Boniuk, 1972).


All significant hand signs listed above for rubella syndrome together cover three out of the nine perspectives of the hand as defined according Multi-Perspective Hand Reading (including hand level 1, 8 & 9).

A summary of the most significant hand sign combinations in rubella syndrome is described here:
