Post-traumatic phalangeal OCD in osteoartritic MTP-1 joint


After axial compression trauma during soccer, a 25 years old male experienced continuous deep pain of the right MTP-1 joint.

The degeneration was regarded as preexistent and not the cause of the current complaints. It's considered to perform arthroscopy with microfracturing of the central phalangeal defect only.
