Abstract
The deep transverse metacarpal ligament extends in radio-ulnar direction between the palmar plates of the metacarpophalangeal joints of the second through fifth finger rays. On the radial aspect of the index and the ulnar aspect of the small fingers, the ligament merges with the collateral ligament of the MCP joints. The ligament has palmar grooves for the flexor tendons at the MCP joints and act as a support for the metacarpal arch. Closed deep transverse metacarpal ligament injury is an unusual case, but the physical findings of deep transverse metacarpal ligament injury are a decrease in grip strength, pain on the ulnar aspect of the hand, and ulnar deviation of the finger in flexion. We have experienced a case of deep transverse metacarpal ligament injury of Lt. 3rd interdigital space in a 23-year old man.
