There is a transverse fracture at the mid capitate. The articular surface appears intact. There is no separation of the ulnar styloid process. The adjacent joint alignment appears normal.
Isolated capitate fractures are rare (scaphoid is the most common associated fracture) and occur via forceful dorsiflexion of hand with impact on the radial side.
