Background: The index finger to ring finger length ratio (2D:4D) of the right hand are affected by prenatal testosterone levels in male. To date, it has been determined that the high 2D: 4D ratio is related to the myocardial infarction, however no research has revealed the relationship between the high 2D: 4D ratio whose coronary artery shows atherosclerotic plaque development.
