We report the case of radial collateral ligament injury of proximal interphalangeal joint with bone defect by machinery grinder injury which was reconstructed using autogeneous iliac bone-ligament-bone graft. A heterodigital neurovascular island flap was performed to cover the skin defect. At 6 weeks follow-up, adduction stress endurance was enough to hold objects in usual life, but stiffness remained. The collateral ligament reconstruction using bone-ligament-bone graft is suggested for chronic instability or acute ligament defect of PIP joint.
