 ABSTRACT

The swollen, painful hand is a familiar sight in the Emergency Department (ED) and often is seen in the context of alcohol intake, following a fight or in association with multiple trauma, all of which can make accurate assessment challenging. We report a case of complete dorsal dislocation of the four ulnar metacarpals and highlight the importance of early diagnosis and treatment for this unusual injury.
