Fracture of other finger bone is caused by direct trauma to the finger, such as a fall, a blunt force, or twisting of the finger.
Diagnosis of a fracture of other finger bone is typically made based on a physical exam, followed by an X-ray or other imaging tests.
Differential diagnosis of a fracture of other finger bone includes a dislocation, tendonitis, arthritis, or a soft tissue injury.
Treatment for a fracture of other finger bone usually involves immobilization of the finger with a splint, ice, and elevation of the finger. Surgery may be required for a more severe fracture.
With appropriate treatment, the prognosis for a fracture of other finger bone is typically good. The finger should heal within a few weeks or months, with no lasting effects.
