Abstract

We describe a patient in whom, despite normal initial radiographs, tomograms, bone scan, and magnetic resonance imaging, Kienböck's disease developed without the patient suffering an intercurrent injury. This case suggests that Kienböck's disease may not always develop acutely after a single injury but may have a more gradual onset.
