  Abstract  
  Acrosyndactyly is a syndactyly with 50% incidence of bilateral presentation with a 50% amputation rate. Its association with an indwelling epidermoid cyst at the fused ends is a rare presentation, with only one case reported in literature. The presence of the epidermoid cyst, the fibrous bands and, amputated digits validate the Extrinsic Theory of Browne. The etiopathogenesis of syndactyly is debatable and remains unknown despite much speculation. We present this case report in support of The Extrinsic Theory.
