Abstract

Descriptions of multiple extensor slips and accessory extensor tendons of the hand are extensively published in the contemporary literature. Despite their varied anatomy, accessory tendons seldom have a functional implication for the patient. We report a case detailing a previously undescribed accessory extensor tendon of the hand, which resulted unusually in an aberration in the mechanics of a single digit. This was explored and corrected surgically, resulting in an excellent outcome for the patient.
