Congenital absence of the central rays of the hand and feet is commonly referred to as ‘lobster clawing’ or as cleft or split hands and feet. Jacob Hartsinck is credited with the first description of cleft hands and feet in a Negro in 1770. We are reported here 4 members in 2 generations of a family who had typical lobster claw feet in association with different types of congenital anamolies of both hands. The presence of typical and atypical deformities of the hands as described by Barsky (1964), in the same family is of particular interest.
