Locking of the metacarpophalangeal joints has been occasionally reported in older adults, but reports of this problem are rare in younger individuals. We report 8 young adult patients with a metacarpophalangeal joint locked in 90° flexion after minor trauma. The cases included 6 little fingers and 2 thumbs in 1 male and 7 female patients aged 16 to 39 years. All were easily reduced closed. We postulate the mechanism of injury. Type of study/level of evidence: Therapeutic IV.
