The Teaching Point

Avascular necrosis of the capitate is a rare entity thought to be related to its relatively protected position in the center of the distal carpal row. It should be a consideration in the evaluation of wrist pain, even in the absence of recent trauma.

Abstract
Avascular necrosis of the capitate is a rare entity. The most common reported etiology is trauma. We report a case of avascular necrosis of the capitate in a patient with chronic wrist pain that began after a single episode of remote trauma.
