Abstract

A 49-year-old man presented to his family physician with pain in the third finger that occurred after he tried to grasp a falling heavy object. His finger was forcefully extended from a semi-flexed position. On clinical examination extension was normal. However, flexion was slightly limited and extremely painful at the end point of flexion.
