    Abstract

    A rare case of simultaneous dislocation of both interphalangeal joints in one finger in a table-tennis player is presented. The second dislocation took place when the first dislocated joint became the fixed part of the finger as it hit a wall. Treatment was, first, hyperextension to unlock the base of the phalanx, then traction along the phalanx: its base was then pushed into contact with the head of the proximal phalanx. Splinting was applied with the joint in slight flexion.
