Madelung Deformity and Extensor Tendon Rupture

Author and Disclosure Information




Our case reflects the usual middle-aged female presentation of such a tendon rupture. The tendon ruptures were spontaneous in the reported order of ulnar to radial, beginning with the little and ring fingers, and progressed radially. The patient had isolated Madelung deformity with no other sign of dyschondrosteosis13 or dwarfism, conditions commonly mentioned in association with Madelung deformity. This case report should raise awareness about possible tendon rupture in any chronic case of Madelung deformity.
