Radial club hand is a very rare birth defect in which the inner forearm does not form properly. This causes the hand to be drawn inward with limited movement. In addition to the curvature of the wrist and forearm, there may be a missing, small, or weak thumb. This condition sometimes occurs in conjunction with other birth defects.
