Most likely diagnostic options for a broad palm (listed order of conditions below is made according overall statistical chance to find this hand sign combined with the condition):

- ASSOCIATED MEDICAL CONDITIONS:

trisomy 21 (= Down syndrome) [~50?% | 1:700 | weight: 0.005]
fragile-X syndrome [~70?% | 1:5.000 | weight: 0.0009]
achondroplasia (= dwarfism) [~95+% | 1:25.000 | weight: 0.0002]
trisomy 13 (= Patau syndrome [~50?% | 1:15.000 | weight: 0.0002]
5p- syndrome (= cri-du-chat syndrome) [~50?% | 1:30.000 | weight: 0.0001]


- ASSOCIATED PSYCHOLOGICAL CONDITIONS:

[1st figure = prevalence hand sign in condition | 2nd
figure = prevalence condition in GP | 3rd figure =
estimated weight hand sign for condition relative
to GP (>1,00 = high impact)]

Earth hands & Air hands!
PB/PL ratio: data for 19 human populations!
Broad palm: PB/PL > 0,81.

Quick summary:
broad palms are often seen in males & Middle East people; high hand index is typically seen in Down syndrome, very high hand index in achondroplasia.

[For every 1000 broad palm cases in the general population (GP) there are only 3 trisomy 21 cases with a broad palm, etc.]


NOTICE: Keep in mind that every single hand sign always bares the potential
to have an association with multiple psychology- and/or health related themes;
a solid assessment always requires a consideration of hand sign combinations!
