The authors report a case of traumatic dislocation of both interphalangeal joints of the ring finger in a 29-year-old male patient, an injury sustained while playing soccer football. Reduction was achieved by closed manipulation, followed by splinting in the "intrinsic plus" position. The joints were stable but had not yet fully recovered their mobility at six months follow-up. The authors survey the literature reports on this rare injury.
