Hand x-ray question, capitate...
Can someone please let me know if there is something wrong here?
Specifically in the area near the capitate knuckle.
I was told there is a hair-line fracture but not sure.

Thank you in advance!

I apologize, not the capitate. I meant metacarpal V. I was thinking something else when i wrote that... Thanks again!

Hi there!

I am not sure about the hairline fracture of the knuckle adjoining the capitate (It might not be visible with the image quality). However there is a boxers fracture (fracture of the 5th metacarpal) seen. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
