Analysis of hand radiographs of juvenile siblings of juvenile propositi indicates that brachymesophalangia‐5 alone (without cones) is separately inherited without apparent sex bias while brachymesophalangia‐5 with the cone‐epiphysis of mid‐5 and the cone‐epiphysis of mid‐5 alone are both apparently inherited as a complex and with a marked excess of females over males.
