Reply to comment by liteferrari57 in My Simian Line by spiderborland

Kinda hoping a palmistry person jumps in. From a science standpoint, I’ve read that it’s associated with autism or hormone imbalances.

EDIT: it’s associated with Down Syndrome, not Autism, as they are two very different things. My mistake.

It is also present in people with Trisomy 21… but many people with normal chromosomes have a simian crease as well. Chalk it up to something cool and unique about yourself.

I thought that it was primarily found in people with Down syndrome (but, not that it necessarily means someone has Down’s). I could very easily be wrong, though.

Welp. When I typed that, it was from a position of thinking that Down Syndrome was a type of Autism. Maybe that was a thought at one point, but I see that they are indeed two separate things.
