Abstract In the past, many biological, anthropological and forensic studies have been conducted on variations in finger and palm ridge patterns, however, finger crease patterns have not received much attention in the literature. The photocase shows an obvious extra phalangeal crease in the little finger as an extremely rarely reported characteristic. Similar unique characteristics need to be reported for their rarity and significance in forensic investigations.
