Dislocation of the carpometacarpal joint of the little finger is an uncommon injury. It is subdivided in ulnopalmar and radiopalmar dislocations. The injury can easily be missed on standard xrays. Closed reduction and K-wire fixation has commonly been used in the treatment, although closed reduction and casting has been reported. This article reports a rare type of injury and discusses its management.
