Abstract

A case of multiple dorsal dislocations of the metacarpophalangeal joints is presented with a review of literature. Prompt recognition of the dislocation type is essential, followed by trial of closed reduction under proper anesthesia; open reduction is sometimes required. A short period of immobilization is needed, followed by intensive rehabilitation.
