The Editor,

An 80-year old man was seen due to visual loss bilaterally and a disquieting glare in his right-eye. In his medical history, he had a blunt trauma and underwent a primary penetrating surgery of his right-eye a year previously. In addition, the patient declared that he had chronic visual loss in his left-eye.

 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.
