PMID:  11172366     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The thumb, which is normally located on the radial border of the hand, requires adequate sensibility to perceive its environment and adequate mobility to oppose to the other digits. We present a case in which the most ulnar digit of the hand was surgically augmented to function as a thumb.
