Macrodactyly, a often congenital anomaly, entails abnormal enlargement of digits, predominantly affecting hands or feet, either in isolation or as part of a syndromic condition. The authors present a case of Macrodystrophia Lipomatosa (ML), a form of macrodactyly, in a 62-year-old patient, emphasizing macrodactyly manifestations through clinical and radiological assessments. Additionally, the authors explore anatomical aspects related to nerve distribution in affected digits, providing a comprehensive understanding of ML. Teaching Point: Explore macrodactyly, emphasizing digits nerve plexus anatomy, which can reveal crucial clues for diagnosing a specific form of this anomaly.
