An unusual case is reported of snapping of the proximal interphalangeal joi nt (PIPJ) of the right little finger in a 14-year-old girl. The lateral ban d of the radial side slipped over the peak of the condyle of the proximal p halanx at 40 deg of flexion. The lateral band was cut and sutured to the ce ntral. slip. At follow-up examination 4 months later, there had been no rec urrence.
