Calcifying tendinitis of the hand is rare, and known to be self-limited or to show improvement with conservative therapy. However, poor response to treatment has been observed in cases of chronic conditions. The authors have performed extracorporeal shock wave therapy on a 19-year-old woman with chronic calcifying tendinitis of the extensor carpi ulnaris tendon, and a 45-year-old female with the condition involving the 4th finger flexor tendon, who showed no response to conservative treatment. Pain relief and radiological improvements were observed in the both patients.
