A painful ring finger following minimal trauma

We present the case of a 24-year-old man with a painful ring finger following minimal trauma during a handball game. The X-ray showed a pathological fracture of the proximal phalanx due to an enchondroma. Conservative treatment was initiated, consisting of cast immobilisation for 6 weeks. After 8 months of follow-up, the X-ray revealed that the bone marrow cavity was almost completely filled with bone tissue.
