Abstract

A case of a closed rupture of a single slip of flexor digitorum superficialis to the little finger is described. Closed rupture injuries of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon are quite common, but closed injuries to the superficialis tendon have been rarely reported. A single slip avulsion rupture of this tendon would seem to be very uncommon. The clinical presentation is reviewed.
