Description: - camptodactyly involves a PIP flexion deformity which usually involves the little finger;
  - deformity is likely due to imbalance caused by extensor hood insufficiency, a tight FDS, and/or abnormal intrinsic insertion volarward;
  - cases which involve contracture of the FDS, may show a dynamic deformity which decreases as the wrist is flexed (w/ time, chronic adaptive changes occur and static contracture occurs)
