The overall prevalence of brachymesophalangia V (Bmf V) in the left hand-wrist X-rays of 1,206 rural Guatemalan children was 5.1%. No differences in prevalence were found between sexes or among ages from 0 to 7 years old. Children with Bmf V did not differ from children without this anomaly in regard to stature, weight, bone age or bone cortical thickness.
