  • I've always had the Simian Crease and Epilepsy. Do they correlate to a specific diagnosis?

    Anonymous on Jun, 7, 2014:

    No, there is no physical correlation of epilepsy nor any genetic, neurological or physical abnormality related to someone being born with one Simian Crease on one hand or two Simian Creases on each hand.

    Simian Creases are a heritable typically gender specific anomaly. All this means is that if you have one or two Simian creases, that you were born with the Simian Crease, in most cases, you inherited it from your same gender parent's line and that it is uncommon, period.

    Long ago Simian Creases were seen as a possible indicator or "marker" of Down's Syndrome. However not all Down's Syndrome babies were found to have a Simian Crease. One estimate is that approximately 60% of infants born with Down's Syndrome are found to also have a Simian Crease.

    Not all affected by Down's Syndrome or related genetic disorders, have a Simian Crease.

    Anthropological studies have found clusters of Simian Creases worldwide and most groups were found to have inherited the Simian Crease(s) from one parent of the same gender in that parent's family line.

    It is extremely rare to find Simian Creases in both parental lines of one person's family tree.

    Again, Simian Crease(s) are unrelated to any genetic, physical, neurological or psychological disorders, illnesses or weaknesses.
