Mallet Finger

Mallet finger is an injury to the extensor tendon located at the end joint, also known as the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint, of a finger or thumb. It is also referred to as “baseball finger” as it is commonly caused by a direct blow to the fingertip by an unyielding object like a baseball, which causes the finger to flex towards the palm beyond its intended limit. This causes stretching of the extensor tendon on the back of the finger that attaches to the joint, resulting in extensor tendon rupture. The result is pain, swelling, bruising and an inability to straighten the tip of the finger.
