The mechanisms of tendon rupture in the hand are reviewed. Attrition ruptures of tendons in the carpal tunnel, other than those due to rheumatoid arthritis, are rare. A case is reported where Kienböck's avascular necrosis of the lunate caused rupture of flexor policis longus. This is the second case reported in the literature and serves as a model of attrition rupture.
