ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Traumatic Phalanx Dislocation

History: 41yo male who caught a “fly-ball” during a softball game, now with deformation, pain, and profuse bleeding.

Findings: Ulnar-dorsal dislocation of the 3rd left distal phalanx. The head of the 3rd proximal phalanx has torn through the volar surface of the finger. Aside from a small corner fracture at the radial aspect of the dislocated phananx base, no other fractures are present.

Ddx: None

Dxhow: Visually

Exam: Obvious hyperextension of the left 3rd distal ray with bone protruding through a soft tissue defect in the volar aspect of the digit.

No MeSH data available.


Three views of the left hand clearly demonstrate the dislocation. Note the protuberance of the head of the proximal phalynx through the volar soft tissues of the digit.
