Abnormal intrasubstance increased signal and fiber discontinuity is present along the course of the third extensor digitorum tendon central fibers at the mid-diaphyseal level of middle finger proximal phalanx. There are also associated edematous changes of the soft tissue around the tendon.
The patient referred to us with the history of left-hand middle finger pain and immobility after playing volleyball from 6 hours ago. After the initial assessment, hand MRI was done and revealed an acute partial thickness tear of the third extensor digitorum tendon.
