Wrist injuries and carpal instability may result from various sport-related acitivites. Lunotriquetral instability (LTI) is an infrequently recognized cause of wrist pain in athletes. The diagnosis of LTI through history and physical examination can be confirmed by Magnetic Resonance Arthrogram (MRA). This case report describes a case of clinically suspected LTI confirmed by MRA. Relevant literature on lunotriquetral injuries is discussed. Lunotriquetral joint injury can present itself and should be considered within a differential diagnosis of a wrist injury. The diagnosis of LTI through clinical history and physical examination can be confirmed by MRA. This case report demonstrates the importance of MRA in the accurate diagnosis and management of a patient with wrist pain.
