Abstract

We report a case of avulsion of the flexor digitorum profundus secondary to recurrent enchondroma. The tumor was curetted with bone grafting of cancellous bone from the distal radius, and the fragment avulsed by the flexor digitorum profundus tendon was fixed to its original site using a pullout suture through the distal phalanx to the nail. The lesion healed and function recovered 6 years after surgery.
