An incidentally diagnosed uncommon anomalous flexor indicis profundus tendon

Onur Akman, Osman Kelahmetoglu, Cetin Duygu, Ethem Guneren.


Abstract
Muscle anomalies in the deep compartment of the forearm are rarely seen and generally do not cause any clinical findings. The flexor indicis profundus (FIP) muscle, which has a separate muscle belly from that of the flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) muscle, is one of the muscle variations in the deep compartment of the forearm. Here, we present a case of a patient with this rare anomaly detected during an operation for a hand injury. No pathologic finding was seen after the operation.

Key words: Muscle,tendon, anomaly, flexor indicis profundus (FIP), hand, injury
