    The sign demonstrated in the Image is - Wrist sign
    In this sign, when the wrist is encircled by the thumb and little finger ( with light pressure / very little effort ), the little finger will overlap at least 1 cm.

    Differentials
    - Marfan's syndrome
    - Hypogonadism
    - Homocystinuria
    - Hyperthyroidism
    ( due to wasting of muscles the diam of the wrist decreases )
    - or any other condition leading to cachexia



    Please note - it is also seen in normal individuals.
