Volar dislocation of PIP joint is a rare injury. They are seldom seen acutely and hence literature is sparse on the ideal method of management of these injuries. We had a patient who presented with a rare combination of volar dislocations of PIP and MCP joints of the ring finger with a classic dorsal dislocation of the PIP joint of the little finger. All dislocations underwent successful closed reduction in the acute stage followed by appropriate method of immobilisation and physiotherapy.
