Abstract: Six cases of nontraumatic avascular necrosis of the scaphoid are reported. Two cases were due to chronic steroid intake with several other sites of bone necrosis; for the other 4 cases no etiology could be established. Four were treated with a proximal row carpectomy, 3 with a very satisfying result, whereas one had to be converted into a wrist arthrodesis.
