ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Dislocation at the interphalangeal joint of the thumb with avulsion fracture

History: Patient presented with pain in his thumb after falling backwards and catching himself that morning, causing him to bend his thumb backwards.

Findings: A-P radiograph of the hand and oblique and lateral radiographs of the first ray show a complete dislocation of the distal phalanx of the right thumb. On the initial film, no fracture was identified; on subsequent radiograph after reduction (not available) an avulsion fracture was noted at the base of the distal phalanx

Ddx: Dislocation at the interphalangeal joint of the thumb with avulsion fracture

Exam: Physical examination showed deformity and limited movement at the interphalangeal joint of the thumb.

No MeSH data available.


Post-reduction radiographs of the right thumb in A-P, lateral, and oblique projections show a small avulsed fracture fragment at the interphalangeal joint (arrow) as seen only on the oblique radiograph.
