In 1979 Linburg and Comstock described a pain syndrome due to an anomalous connection between the flexor pollicis longus (FPL) and the tendon of the flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) to index finger. We report a patient with this anomaly whose complaint was lack of independent excursion of the FPL. A 26-year-old male student presented to the outpatient clinic with symptom that he was unable to flex the distal joint of his right thumb without flexing the distal joint of the index finger. Flexion of the distal joint of the thumb was always accompanied by simultaneous flexion of the index finger but flexion of the index finger was not accompanied by flexion of the thumb.
