Abstract

Majority of proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint dislocations are dorsal dislocations but multıple PIP dislocations of the adjacent digits is very rare. This study presents a very rare case of a 82-year-old man who had two PIP dislocations in the same hand. He was successfully treated by closed reduction and he had no loss of function at final follow-up. Multiple PIP dislocations in the same hand are seen rarely, when treated properly, outcome is excellent even in elderly.
