Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors report a case of isolated symmetrical metacarpia of the first metacarpal in a 33-year-old serving soldier. The patient was totally unaware of the deformity, which was found incidentally while radiographs were done for the wrist to rule out scaphoid fracture. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no similar reports in the English literature before.
