Abstract

This is a report of a 41-year-old male with triggering of the long finger flexor digitorum superficialis tendon at the wrist secondary to tophaceous gout. The tophus was severely infiltrating the tendon, and a tenotomy of the FDS tendon was performed. Preoperatively, the lesion could not be distinguished from a neoplasm.
