The present study was carried out to evaluate the effect of polygenic morbidity with respect to Cleft Palate and Cleft Lip with or without Cleft Palate (CL) in males and females based on dermatoglyphic traits (DT) and indices of intraindividual diversity (Div), fluctuating (FA) and directional (DA) asymmetry. The main objectives of the present study were as follows: a) to find DT and FA indices, which could be "marker" traits and could indicate the degree of developmental instability of the… Expand

The results of the present study show distinctive sexual differences in males, higher values in males are recorded in finger ridge counts, the Furuhata and Cummins indices, the palm ridge counts and the overall ridge counts in all interdigital areas. Expand
Dermatoglyphic Analysis in Parents with Nonfamilial Bilateral Cleft Lip and Palate Children
The findings suggest that an increase in the asymmetry of atd angles and pattern types in parents of sporadically affected children may reflect more the genetic base of this congenital malformation. Expand
Dermatoglyphic Pattern Types in Subjects with Nonsyndromic Cleft Lip with or without Cleft Palate (CL/P) and Their Unaffected Relatives in the Philippines
Differences in frequency of dermatoglyphic pattern types and pattern dissimilarity exist between individuals with orofacial clefts and their unaffected relatives and between both groups and controls, with the major effect seen in female subjects. Expand
Palm and Finger Print Characteristics in Nonfamilial Cleft Lip and Palate Patients and their Parents
No enhanced fluctuating asymmetry was found in most of the dermatoglyphic traits in the population studied, which indicated a low degree of developmental instability of the sporadic cases of cleft deformity. Expand
Dermatoglyphic Features in Nonsyndromic Cleft Lip and/or Palate Patients and Their Parents in China
The increased tendency for slower development of patterns and higher levels of FA indirectly support the possibility that the developmental sequence of ridges in NSCL/P is retarded. Expand
Individuals with nonsyndromic orofacial clefts have increased asymmetry of fingerprint patterns
Investigating dermatoglyphics in orofacial clefting observed increased pattern dissimilarity in individuals with clefts, compared to both their unaffected relatives and controls, which may reflect a generalized developmental instability. Expand
A Comparative Study of Fluctuating Asymmetry in Chinese Families with Nonsyndromic Cleft Palate
Objective: To compare the asymmetry displayed by Chinese patients with nonsyndromic cleft palate (NSCP), their unaffected parents, and a control population. Method: With rigorous inclusion criteria,Expand
Cleft lip with or without cleft palate and dermatoglyphic asymmetry: evaluation of a Chinese population.
OBJECTIVE To determine if Chinese individuals with non syndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) display more dermatoglyphic asymmetry than unaffected relatives or controls. DESIGNExpand
A comparative study of fluctuating asymmetry in Chinese families with nonsyndromic cleft palate.
It is indicated that, when compared with a gender-matched control population, patients with NSCP show significantly increased FA in both ear length and palpebral fissure width, but the parents of patients withNSCP show significant increased FA only in palpecular fissures. Expand
