Standardized radiographs of the hand and wrist were examined to record the frequency of brachymesophalangia-5 in Australian Aboriginals, 106 males and 93 females. The use of different metric ratios as diagnostic criteria led to wide variation in frequencies of BMP-5. However application of more rigid criteria based on linear regressions gave frequencies of 2.83% in males and 3.23% in females, which are similar to those reported in other populations.
