Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: A case report of dorsal trapezoid dislocation with index and middle carpometacarpal dislocation is described.
OBJECTIVES: On review of the literature, this rare injury is often misdiagnosed on presentation, with difficulty in reviewing initial radiographs being a key factor.
CASE REPORT: We present our case report of trapezoid dislocation and describe the "missing carpal sign" on radiographs as an aid to suspicion of diagnosis.
CONCLUSION: Trapezoid dislocation is an often-overlooked diagnosis; we present a sign to increase suspicion of injury and hence promote further investigation.
