Abstract

Carpal bossing is appearance of a bony and often painful mass in the region of the second and third carpometacarpal joint [1]. Its etiology is not known and its association with carpal coalition, which is an asymptomatic condition, is an interesting phenomenon, which may give a clue to its etiology. This combination is reported only once in the literature in which the coalition involved the capitate and trapezoid [1]. We report an interesting case of carpal bossing with coalition between the trapezium-trapezoid. This is the first case reporting such combination.
