Closed tendon avulsion of both flexor tendons in the same finger is an extremely rare condition. We encountered the case of a patient who presented a rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus in zone 1 and flexor digitorum superficialis in zone 3 in the little finger. This occurrence has not been reported previously. We hereby present our case, make a review of the literature of avulsion of both flexor tendons of the same finger, and propose a treatment according to the site of the ruptures.

Case Report
A 30-year-old patient presented to the emergency unit after a rugby game with the impossibility to flex his fifth finger on the left hand. Surgical exploration was performed the same day; it demonstrated a rupture of the FDP a few millimetres from its insertion and a laceration of the FDS in the mid-palm. No previous trauma or other pathology could explain this double rupture.
