Introduction: Fractures of the sesamoid bones of the metacarpophalangeal joint (MCPJ) are a rare pathology in hand trauma. Only a few case reports and case series were found in the literature. The diagnosis of an ulnar sesamoid bone fracture of the MCPJ is difficult and can pose a differential diagnostic problem with Stener lesions or ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) instability.
Case Presentation: We report a case of a 35-year-old male Caucasian patient after a thumb injury due to a fall with his mountain bike. X-ray showed a fracture of the ulnar sesamoid of the MCPJ of the pollex, which is rarely reported in this literature. Anamnesis, clinical examination, and X-ray evaluation contributed to our diagnosis. The ulnar sesamoid bone fracture of the MCPJ of the right pollex was initially treated conservatively with immobilization, rest and ice application. After 3-4 weeks, physiotherapy with thenar muscles exercises was started.
