Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Symphalangism is a rare, congenital syndrome involving ankylosis of the interphalangeal joints. We present a rare case of fracture at the level of a fused proximal interphalangeal joint in a patient with proximal symphalangism of the hand. Nonoperative management with splinting resulted in osseous healing and restored baseline function.
