Case Report

Intrinsic contracture of the hand after minor trauma

Ahmet Adnan Karaarslan, Nihat Acar, Serhat Yildirim, Erhan Sesli.

A case of intrinsic contracture of a hand of an 18-year-old thin woman following an unrecognized mild trauma is presented. The moderate intrinsic tightness of the second, third, fourth and fifth fingers had been released from the metacarpal bones using the inter-osseous muscle sliding technique. After a 2.5 years follow-up period, no signs of recurrence were recorded and the functional outcome was favorable. Even a very mild trauma in slim patients may lead to hand edema which, in the long-term, could result in intrinsic muscle atrophy of the hand.
