Wrist Pain From Overuse: Detecting and Relieving Intersection Syndrome

It's sometimes called 'oarsmen's wrist,' but intersection syndrome—an inflammation in the dorsal wrist—can affect anyone who wields implements like rackets or ski poles. The author uses a skier's case to describe the typical history, diagnosis, and treatment.

Jane T. Servi, MD


Emergencies

Pinning Down Skin Infections: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention in Wrestlers

Wrestling spreads such skin infections as herpes simplex, tinea corporis, and impetigo. Besides recognizing and treating these conditions, physicians need to know when to disqualify wrestlers and how to contain outbreaks. Sidebars describe how two recent outbreaks in Washington state were arrested.

Persistent Pain After Ankle Sprain: Targeting the Causes

If pain from a lateral ankle sprain lasts longer than 6 weeks, it could be a matter of inadequate rehabilitation, resolvable with appropriate exercise, or it could be any of several tougher problems. The authors discuss how to home in on the pathology and treat it. As a bonus, they review initial management of ankle sprains.

Hugh L. Bassewitz, MD; Matthew Shapiro, MD


Case Report

An Occult Cervical Spine Fracture

A 16-year-old boy had neck pain after being dropped on his head while wrestling. Initial radiographs looked normal, but the pain persisted, and further imaging 2 months later revealed a vertebral body fracture.
