Congenital absence of the scaphoid without associated thumb or radial hypoplasia is a rare condition. This report is the third case presented in the literature of this condition. The case presented is of a patient who presented initially with wrist pain. Radiographs revealed a congenitally absent scaphoid and examination revealed no evidence of thumb hypoplasia. A brief review of the literature on congenital absence of the scaphoid is discussed.
