Abstract

A unique case of dorsal carpal dislocation of a rheumatoid wrist with an unusual pattern of flexor tendon rupture and median nerve compression is reported. The carpus was relocated and fused to the radius. The distal ulna was resected. Grafting and adjacent suturing of the tendons restored function, but late follow-up showed development of secondary deformities.
