Polydactyly myopia syndrome is characterized by postaxial polydactyly (the presence of an extra digit on the side of the hand or foot by the pinky or small toe) and progressive myopia. This condition was originally described in 9 persons in 4 generations of a family in Hungary in 1986. Family history suggests autosomal dominant inheritance.[1][2][3]
